Duffy’s Crash Course on Good Writing
A former journalist, Oxford Editing’s founder Dr. Matt J. Duffy has been teaching writing for nearly a decade. While teaching, Dr. Duffy found himself stressing the same points in class after class. In response, he created a brief two-page set of simple writing tips and editing guidelines that covers frequent problems writers encounter. He hopes that authors these guidelines can use these guidelines when editing their work. Feel free to print this instructional guide for your personal use.

Dr. Duffy also recommends William Strunk and E.B. White’s The Elements of Style. This slim book, a must for academic writers, is packed with fundamental advice for improving your writing and can answer many common grammatical questions as well.
