Many years ago, during my first semester as a history teacher at the University Edinburgh, I was appalled by the quality of the texts I received from my students. I subsequently put together the following set of essay-writing guidelines to help them deliver high-quality work. I have since received positive feedback on this text, so I decided to make it freely available to everyone by relinquishing copyright.

The following text was composed by Sveinbjorn Thordarson in December, 2010. It is hereby released into the public domain and may be freely redistributed, modified, translated and/or copied by anyone, without any restrictions whatsoever.
