About this guide

These pages provide writing skills support for dissertation writers and thesis writers. It’s not a conventional how-to guide, but rather provides a variety of voices.

Nine topics cover a range of issues in the writing process. In each you will find quotes that are professional responses to common questions about thesis writing. They come from interviews with professional writers, successful doctorate students and writing experts. These quotes can be used as training materials for groupwork or individual study, as well as providing food for thought and inspiration.

The project was conceived and developed by Andrew Ward and Peter Wood.
