“A much-needed guide for students and early-career scholars. The combination of highly relevant writing tips and indispensable publishing advice makes this book unique among existing qualitative inquiry texts.”

—Season Ellison, PhD, Director, Honors Program and Liberal Education Program, Bemidji State University

“This accessible and well-written book is a 'must read' for qualitative researchers and students. Leavy shares her years of experience writing all kinds of qualitative research, as well as publishing it. I don't know of any other book that covers this topic in such detail. Leavy provides exercises to help users develop and hone their skills for communicating within academic fields and with the broader public. I will use this book in my own writing practice as well as my classroom. It's not hyperbole to say that this work may change your professional life!”

—Sandra L. Faulkner, PhD, School of Media and Communication, Bowling Green State University

“This book is written in a great style that students will find relatable, unlike most of the academic literature on the topic. As a text in qualitative and practice-based research classes, the book can provide helpful in-class activities and reflection prompts. I will definitely use it to help my doctoral students find their voice and styles as writers.”

—Veselina Lambrev, PhD, College of Education, University of South Florida

“Writing is an essential craft for reporting qualitative methodologies and findings. This book fills a critical gap in education about qualitative inquiry and in paths to publishing. Rather than simply stating what to do or not do, Leavy provides scaffolded exercises to help researchers build their all-important 'writing muscles.'”

—Deborah L. Tolman, EdD, Department of Women and Gender Studies, Hunter College; Critical Social Psychology Doctoral Program, The Graduate Center, The City University of New York

“This book offers practical, applicable strategies for writing and publishing qualitative research studies. The author’s voice is accessible, encouraging, and informal, yet clearly informed by experience and expertise. Her tips will help all researchers (novice and expert) to tailor their writing for differing audiences, formats, and purposes. If you follow Leavy's advice and make the exercises in this book habitual, you will increase your chances for success!”

—Holly Anthony, PhD, Department of Curriculum and Instruction, Tennessee Tech University
