This book is a wide-ranging exploration of the act of writing which focuses on a variety of ways in which the experience is framed by academic and literary writers. With a primary focus on academic writing, Dr Chandler outlines the importance of the media and processes of mediation involved, referring in particular to language, the written word, textual genres, writing tools, academic disciplines and roles, publishing systems and personality.
