November is Academic Writing Month on SAGE MethodSpace. This year, people who registered on MethodSpace and commented to AcWriMo posts were entered into four giveaways. Three winners received books that will help them move forward as academic writers. The grand prize winner will have a 30-minute consultation with a SAGE acquisitions editor to gain publication advice on a writing project.
