Helen Sword is professor and director of the Centre for Learning and Research in Higher Education at the University of Auckland. She is the author, most recently, of Stylish Academic Writing and manages the website www.writersdiet.com.
"Even the leanest and most muscular stylists can end up with jiggly bits in their prose. With Sword as your coach, and The Writer's Diet as your training manual, you can slim down, tone up, and become a more energetic, engaging, and lively writer."--Rachel Toor, columnist for The Chronicle of Higher Education and associate professor of creative writing at Eastern Washington University "Times Higher Education"
