Writing geography: Teaching research writing and storytelling in the discipline

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

2 Scopus citations


Writing is a vital activity for all academic geographers and essential to their success. But few graduate programs devote courses to teaching MA and PhD students how to write even though qualitative and quantitative methods courses are now commonplace. This article discusses some of the major critiques of academic writing and how I have sought to address these criticisms in Writing Geography, a graduate seminar I developed to help students improve their research writing.
