How to improve academic writing in Humanities disciplines?

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, long time lurker here, hope you are all doing great!

As an international student whose native language is not English and who intends to apply for a CompLit PhD program in the U.S., I feel like it is essential to improve my academic writing skills since the quality of my writing sample matters so much during this whole application process, so would you please recommend some books that would be helpful here? It doesn't have to be a technical book, any book that you think is enlightening, or anything where you find the prose and style is beautiful, is very very much appreciated.

I am sorry if I am posting on the wrong forum (there is a specific Writing, Publishing forum at the gradcafe). I was just wondering that academic writing in different disciplines may vary a lot, so I really hope I could hear your advice.

Thanks in advance!
