Academic writing is a special form of communication with its own goals, methods, and conventions.

The scholarly writer requires an editor with a critical eye for mechanics and effective argumentation, a firm grasp of academic citation styles, and an appreciation of the often-adversarial aims of complexity and clarity.

With personal and professional experience in higher education, TWEED answers the call of the scholarly writer, offering editing tailored for academic and professional success.
