Research Writing

I never did honours. Or masters. And my undergraduate degree was in sculpture. I received a scholarship to do a PhD, almost entirely on the merit of my practice based research as a sculptor and media producer, but I had developed little to none of the academic writing skills required to get by. A couple of books were of monumental assistance:

The Craft of Research

By Wayne C. Booth, Gregory G. Colomb and Joseph M. Williams

and

Style, Toward Clarity and Grace 

also by Joseph M. Williams and Gregory G. Colomb.
