About the Writing in English Blog

The Writing in English Blog is intended to complement the topics in the Reference Guide on this site. While the Reference Guide is relatively impersonal and neutral in tone, this blog is intended to discuss many of the same issues in a more animated and personal way. Blog posts are written by different authors and may address any topic that can reasonably be associated with academic writing and learning English at the university level.

Please check back from time to time to find new texts giving tips, pointing out traps, investigating the complexities of writing, and sharing the wisdom of the teachers here.

If you are interested in contributing to the blog, please contact one of the editors, Gregory Garretson or Christer Larsson.

Happy reading!
