Writing Short is Hard launches a new text analysis tool for

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, July 21. Feb. 2, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Writing Short is Hard — the consulting firm that provides writing and editing support to academics and creatives — is thrilled to announce the launch of writingwellishard.com, a new writing tool. text analysis that allows writers to assess their work against the style of writing they are trying to emulate.

Designed specifically for academics, writingwellishard.com was created on the belief that there is no single definition of “good” academic writing; instead, it helps writers write by aligning with the style of top writers in their field.

Existing digital writing assistants, such as Grammarly, are useful for checking grammar and syntax; however, they only serve to “fix” the writing and reinforce existing norms.

In contrast, writingwellishard.com allows users to compare their work to a sample of a text that they consider to be well written. The tool then compares the two pieces, calculates the density of linguistic features such as passive voice, and provides an analysis that helps the user align their writing with the style of the sample.

Development of the tool was spearheaded by Writing Short is Hard owner Letitia Henville, an award-winning editor with a Ph.D. in English literature. With the support of a small team, she has been building writingwellishard.com since early 2022.

“I don’t believe there’s only one way to write well, and I don’t like that models of ‘good’ writing are too often white, cis, masculine and dead,” commented Henville. “I want scholars to be able to edit their own work strategically and intentionally, modeling their work on whatever writer or writing they think is best.”
