Write Your Research: resources on academic writing

Anthony Haynes writes: Many readers of the Creative Writing Studies imprint – and of this website – will be involved in higher education – as students, teachers, or scholars. Many are therefore likely to be involved in two types of writing – creative writing (in the form of fiction, poetry, life-writing etc.) and academic writing (in the form of conference presentations, journal papers etc.).

To help  with academic writing I have produced some downloadable resources. They are now available on the Write Your Research website: http://writeyourresearch.wordpress.com. They cover:

  • What you need to know about writing
  • Writing abstracts
  • Writing journal papers
  • Writing a presentation
  • Writing a report
  • Planning your work
  • Editing your work

The resources were peer-reviewed by graduate students from the University of Cambridge and sponsored by the university’s School of Technology.

I hope they prove useful.

  1. I would love to hear from creative writers how they cope with switching between creative and academic styles of writing.

  2. Thanks, Alison. As well as publishing in the area of creative writing, I teach writing in science and technology disciplines. My own view is that, though each discipline has its own distinguishing features, the writing in all of them forms part of a broad river – and that a writer pursuing one kind of writing can learn from their expertise in another. I too wonder what other people find.
