About the Author

Harry F. Wolcott (Ph.D. Stanford) taught at the University of Oregon, serving on both the faculties of education and anthropology. He authored several ethnographic texts that included his experiences among the Kwakiutl Indians of British Columbia and with the African Beer Gardens of Bulawayo, Rhodesia, as well on ethnographic method and on writing itself, with a focus on qualitative research. His publications included: Transforming Qualitative Data (SAGE 1994); Art of Fieldwork (2nd ed., Altamira Press 2005); Ethnography: A Way of Seeing (2nd ed., Altamira Press 2008); Writing Up Qualitative Research (3rd ed., SAGE 2009); Sneaky Kid and Its Aftermath: Ethics and Intimacy in Fieldwork (Altamira 2002), and Ethnography Lessons: A Primer (Left Coast Press, 2010).

Reviews

"Throughout, the guidance remains very practical, keeping clearly in sight the goal of actually getting the writing task done. The style is friendly, chatty and humorous, resulting in a guidebook that is accessible and a pleasure to read. I would highly recommend this book to anyone whose work involves writing up qualitative research, not only if you encounter particular struggles, but also if you just appreciate some words of reassurance or encouragement from time to time." -- Annie Irvine "Wolcott's advice is highly individual, and much of it involves strategies for finding the techniques for writing and editing that best fit you as a writer. Wolcott explains his points in a friendly and accessible manner, which makes the book feel like a lively conversation with a colleague rather than an academic treatise on writing. Writing Up Qualitative Research is a valuable resource for academic writers at any stage of their careers. Graduate students will find the discussion of breaking out of the prescribed formulas of the dissertation genre very helpful. New academics will enjoy the advice for keeping writing relevant to the audience, as well as the chapters on negotiating the publication process. Even seasoned academic writers will not go away from Wolcott's book empty-handed, because it contains advice for guiding new writers and graduate students. Writing Up Qualitative Research is an enjoyable, refreshing, and useful monograph, and I know I will be using it for advice and inspiration for years to come." -- Nicole St. Germaine-McDaniel "Throughout, the guidance remains very practical, keeping clearly in sight the goal of actually getting the writing task done...I would highly recommend this book to anyone whose work involves writing up qualitative research, not only if you encounter particular struggles, but also if you just appreciate some words of encouragement from time to time." -- Annie Irvine SRA
