Better academic writing starts here.
We simplify the most relevant ideas about clear writing for academics, researchers, scientists, lawyers, and anyone else!
The ReallyWrite Editor is a free editing tool for informative writing. It gives you line-by-line feedback your text based on established writing principles. Just paste a section of text into the app and start revising!
You may not be familiar with all the principles that ReallyWrite evaluates in your text. Don't worry, you're in good company! Many people do not write consciously-- they are unaware of the underlying principles that impact clarity.
If you don't understand the issue that the ReallyWrite Editor points out, you can just click to the learn page to learn how it works. If you need more explanation, later you'll be able to sign up for an extensive online course or schedule a one-on-one feedback session with an experienced writing teacher.
The teachers will not edit your text for you: they will talk you through what is happening in your text so that you understand how to fix it. We want you to learn to do it well yourself -- and to share that information with others!
If we can make this information freely available worldwide, then everyone who aspires to advance their field by writing about their research clearly has the support to do so.
We also hope to give you the confidence and courage to dare to write clearly, especially early in your career.
Feel free to contact us with feedback!
