Craft your text and bring it all together


You'll be writing and re-writing ideas, notes, and drafts throughoutyour entire research process; writing is a form of thinking. Crafting the final text that you'll submit requires you to step back and look at yourdraft texts and your entire project from a reader's perspective. 


Who can I speak to?

Talk with an LSE LIFE study adviser about your writing process, and with librarians for advice on referencing so that your reader understands the foundations of your ideas and research. Questions you could discuss might include...

  • Is there a "right way" to structure a dissertation?
  • What belongs in which sections?
  • How can I get into a writing flow?
