This helpful guide is designed to assist new graduate students as well as more experienced dissertation candidates to improve their academic writing. Designed especially for students in social sciences, education, and business, it distinguishes academic writing from business and professional writing and offers helpful hints to smooth the graduate's path to success. The book contains a punctuation refresher, common grammatical and stylistic errors to avoid, and a checklist of the most common APA formatting errors. The author is a former college professor of writing who works as a freelance editor and APA instructor.
I'm a former college professor of literature and writing who's been a freelance editor for the last 20 years. I edit academic papers, dissertations, and fiction and nonfiction manuscripts. I teach writing workshops for creatives, academics, and business professionals. I am also an artist (www.jillkellycreative.com).
I have written two novels (The Color of Longing: An Unconventional Romance and Fog of Dead Souls: A Thriller). I am also the author of a memoir, Sober Truths: The Making of an Honest Woman, which was a finalist for the prestigious Oregon Book Award, and a how-to book, Sober Play: Using Creativity for a More Joyful Recovery.read more
