Hi, and welcome! I’m Kate Babbitt, a former academic with over two decades of experience as an editor for academic writers. I’ve put together this site to bring together the latest information from neuroscience, cognitive psychology, and writing research about the complex task of academic writing. It’s full of tips about ways to work better and more efficiently, working with editors and publishers, and how to be a good friend to your writing brain. I hope this site will empower you and support you in your journey to writing expertise.
