Reviews

"David Starkey delivers clear, ordered advice in a voice so familiar and colloquial that anyone's anxiety about this often rigid, academic subject will start to calm. He moves seamlessly between examples ranging from everyday experience to the highest levels of great writing, and what I like best is that underneath it all he encourages students to keep creativity and poetic insight alive even as they tackle the challenge of writing rigorous, scholarly papers."--Richard Guzman, North Central College

"David Starkey's Academic Writing Now: A Brief Guide for Busy Students is a great resource for first-year writing students and faculty who want to move swiftly through essential concepts in order to get down to the brass tacks of the academic essay. Starkey not only invites student readers through conversation, efficiency, and practical wisdom, but also targets key areas that writing instructors repeatedly discuss in hopes that students will internalize writing as a process and begin to reflect upon their writing in a metacognitive way."--Calley Hornbuckle, Columbia College
