Rachel Toor, a former acquisitions editor at Oxford and Duke University Presses and professor in the graduate creative writing program at Eastern Washington University, discusses reasons she thinks so much of academic writing stinks (hint: one of the biggies is fear) and gives her top ten strategies for how to write better academic prose (including almost too-obvious-to-speak-aloud tips that often get overlooked). The talk will be geared to academics at all career levels, from graduate students to full professors who care about writing better.
