Welcome to my short course on academic writing. It’s a topic very important for a lot of us, but unfortunately, we are bad at it through no fault of our own. Here is my humble attempt to correct it. There are 4 lectures in this series, and this is Lecture 01. In this one, I talk about —
Part 01 – What is academic writing? Why is it important?
Part 02 – How academic writing is different then popular/creative writing?
Part 03 – Types of academic writing and their structures
Part 04 – Common myths about academic writing
