William Logan said (I think in Desperate Measures) he once thought about being an English major and then said, "Oh, sh**, papers." I am a Masters of Divinity student (with PhD dreams) in the process of starting a writing help-center at Iliff School of Theology. Students here want to save the world from injustice and oppression and are finding "Oh, sh**, papers" to be a battle-cry! There are many non-traditional students that need a bit of a refresher in writing to cope with the masters-level work. Plus, many students are becoming ministers-- performers, teachers, non-profit organizers and counselors rather than specifically writing professionals.

Can anyone suggest a favorite writing guide or help manual for them? Any books on writing I could recommend to these wise and struggling students?

The Elements of Style is a perennial favorite.

If they are writing pretty hefty (or really polished) research papers, IMO, it's got to be The Craft of Research.

I agree with jesslyn. The Craft of Research is a well-written guide to writing.
