This document contains advice for students writing a thesis or report in (applied) econometrics. I discuss how to structure these documents, what elements should be present in the introduction. I give some advice regarding the writing of mathematics, and the use of tables, and discuss some general issues related to writing style. The document is written with an audience of students in econometrics in mind, but may be more broadly valuable for writing in economics.
