    • Abstract:
      The editors of the Journal of Northwest Anthropology invited twenty-five colleagues to share their perspectives on anthropological writing and publishing in an essay format. The purpose was to collect experiences, insights, and suggestions from experienced authors to assist other professionals in writing and publishing their own research. Nineteen of those invited accepted the challenge. The group includes academic and practicing anthropologists, archaeologists, and ecologists. Collectively, the group has written or co-written more than 150 books, 150 chapters in books, and more than 1,100 articles in professional journals. The essays contain personal writing-related anecdotes and philosophies, describe the changes occurring in the publishing industry, explore the benefits that can accrue from writing, and provide tips to improve one's writing to increase the chances of getting published.
