Wendy Laura Belcher is professor of African literature at Princeton University with a joint appointment in the Department of Comparative Literature and the Department for African American Studies. She wrote this book based on her experiences as an author, a managing editor of a peer-reviewed journal, and the designer of academic writing workshops that have helped hundreds around the world to publish their work.
I know of no other handbook that focuses on this particular genre of academic writing in such a thorough and, therefore, useful manner. I am confident that anybody who actively works through this book--it is, indeed, a workbook--will eventually taste the academic publishing success in the book's subtitle. --Praise for the previous edition Steven E.

Offers sound advice, encouragement, and confidence-building strategies that help novice writers create/recreate a written text that could be publishable. --Praise for the previous edition Chronicle of Higher Education
