We’ve asked academics, authors, publishers and postdocs to share with us their advice for how to improve your academic writing and chances of getting published. 


They cover everything from tips to establish a consistent writing practice like Jack London and how to find the hook in your work, to why your article might be rejected and how to bring in voices beyond just those writing in standard North American or British English.
