The 2017 issue of ‘Tortoise: A Journal of Writing Pedagogy’ is now online and available. The theme this year is ‘Risk-taking in academic writing.’ Over the past year, my staff reviewed more than 87 academic papers, and we selected 15 for publication, with topics ranging from The Great British Bake Off, to Assassin’s Creed, to the refugee crisis. The issue also includes essays by our staff reflecting on their own writing processes. This publication strives to achieve what few other journals have attempted–to better understand the academic writing process and help provide examples of strong academic writing to students as a novel educational tool.
