Introduction

The author

The guide was specially written by Dr David Kennedy, an experienced writer and teacher. David was an RLF Felllow at Trinity & All Saints College, Leeds, and then a Senior Lecturer at the University of Hull.

The guide draws on his experience of working with students on a one-to-one basis to improve their essay writing skills. It also draws on the experience of other Royal Literary Fund Writing Fellows and of teaching staff in institutions where they work.
