Resources for Academic Writers

Academic writing is hard. But you don’t have to figure
everything out on your own.

Genre

Resources specific to various genres of academic writing, from journal articles to book proposals to job application materials.

Craft

Resources to help you hone your writing.

Process

Resources on the writing process—minimizing digital distractions, dealing with burnout, finding the time to write when there are a million other things you need to do.

Since my grad-school days, I’ve geeked out on books about the craft & process of writing. More recently, I’ve also taken a deep dive into works that help scholars navigate the conventions of various genres of academic writing. I created lists of the resources in each of these categories that I’ve found especially helpful.
