i have been doing academic writing for four years now. i am well conversant with different writing styles including apa, mla, chicago, and harvard. all my writings are grammatically perfect and free of plagiarism. i keep my writing clear and concise and make sure that i get all ideas in a comprehensible form. it is clear expression of these ideas that normally impress my clients, not a string of long, inappropriate words found in the dictionary. a wide range of vocabulary is of course important, but i must use the right word, and shorter ones are often better than longer ones. i try to avoid every day, informal language, especially colloquial expressions and slang. also, spoken language is naturally full of hesitations, repetitions, grammatical errors and unfinished ideas. in my writing, however, structure is much more important: my sentences are complete and ideas arranged into paragraphs or sections, and i normally aim for perfection in my grammar and spelling. i clearly show my understanding of the topic and my ability to manipulate information to answer a specific question or complete a specific task, avoiding grammatical errors and plagiarism. some of the typical activities i am involved in include the following: • researching the market including reading relevant publications or blogs, and staying up to date with writing that is being produced in your chosen field; • selecting topic matter based on personal or public interest, or commissioned by a publisher or agent; • undertaking background research including desk based research and conducting site visits or interviews; • writing individual pieces, including using the technical skills of writing and being able to structure and plan individual projects; • editing, revising and reviewing work especially in response to feedback; • working to tight deadlines, especially for theatre, screen and radio; • submitting material for publication in the required and expected format; • networking with other writers, as well as others involved in the industry such as publishers, booksellers and organizers of literary events; • liaising with publishers, agents, script editors, producers and directors; • finding, pursuing and maintaining knowledge of publication opportunities; • marketing including maintaining an online presence through a website, blog or social media presence; • talking about your work at events and conducting readings or book signings; • teaching writing in further or higher education settings or running workshops privately; • critiquing the work of other writers including sometimes providing mentoring or coaching services; • managing the business side of writing including maintaining financial records, checking contracts and submitting invoices and tax returns.
