In this article, I will discuss my favorite
niche and one that I have focused on mainly since I started working online several years ago: Academic Writing.

Academic writing involves carrying out research on a given topic and writing a standard academic paper on the same. By standard, I mean a paper that meets and exceeds all scholarly expectations as determined by the examiner/faculty. These include the length of the paper (in pages), the number of references to be used, and the citation/referencing style to be used.

Most academic writing jobs are given by students who need the course workloads broken down for them for easier understanding and revision. As an academic writer, you are allowed to use any resources at your disposal to come up with a quality research.


For most Kenyan academic writers, the internet is the number one source information. Therefore, a computer and a reliable internet connection are the basic tools a writer needs.

A page is determined by the number of words, usually between 250-300 words. For most academic writing websites, a page should be at least 275 words. The most common citation/referencing styles are APA, MLA, Harvard, and Chicago.
