Routes of Writing

Great academic writing seems to tickle our brains without lifting a textual finger. But scholars work hard to refine their writing. Polished writing takes considerable time, measured thought, and the critiques of peers and colleagues.

The Routes of Writing project gives insight into the writing practices of McGill academics. Professors and librarians from across the disciplines offer their reflections on writing processes and critical thinking. Click on the photos to take a look at what they have to say, and check this space periodically for new additions.
