Becoming an Academic Writer helps you gain control over writing and publishing, master specific aspects of academic writing, and improve your productivity. Patricia Goodson's book offers weekly exercises and tools to achieve these goals. The exercises are grounded in a theoretically-sound and empirically-based mode comprising a set of behavioural principles (e.g., writing regularly, separating generating from editing) and specific practices (weekly exercises) which ensure success.

Based on the work of writing theoretician Peter Elbow, the empirical research done by Robert Boice (and others) on writing productivity of college professors, and the research into the practice patterns of elite performers (such as Olympic athletes), the principles and practices have been developed and tested over time.

Inside you'll find:

Exercises tailored to specific segments of academic papers and reportsTips for ESL Writers boxes, providing additional support.

This book uniquely combines these successful principles with a set of original exercises applicable to the writing needs of academics as well as students.

"The practical nature of the book is a strength, with the series of exercises which would be useful for novice writers at the undergraduate or graduate level." -- Carol A. Kochhar-Bryant
"This book makes the reader want to write! I found myself reaching for my calendar and penciling in writing sessions for the rest of my week after reading the first chapter. The techniques and exercises are effective and easy to implement; they fit with any writing project, in any stage of the writing process. I could see myself and other academics as the audience for this book, but I could equally envision assigning this book to my undergraduate students and working through many of the exercises with them." -- H. Elisabeth Ellington
"This book is likely to inspire writing groups of all kinds of academic writers. I can see ABDs following this program to successful completion of a doctoral thesis and the subsequent necessary articles written from the thesis." -- Laura Huntoon
"I was impressed by how much the author was able to bring in scholarly research on writing." -- Tanya Maria Golash-Boza
"I enjoyed this book! Each chapter eases smoothly into the next and the writer continues to provide readers with inspiration and pragmatic information." -- Nathalie Kuroiwa-Lewis
"The author's way of breaking down our practices of writing with exercises and examples will benefit not only my students and their journeys in writing but mine as well." -- Jennifer Smith Lapointe
