This chapter presents the approach to teaching and learning academic writing that the authors have implemented in an educational intervention in the academic community of Psychology. Firstly the theoretical assumptions underlying the educational intervention are presented. Secondly, the key principles and characteristics of such intervention are discussed. And finally some of the findings obtained in different studies we carried out to assess the impact of the aforementioned intervention are presented. While doing so, some examples to illustrate the students' struggles for writing as members of a disciplinary community and for developing an authorial identity, as well as their efforts to make their voice visible in their texts through the use of discursive resources such as citation or their dialogue within their own community of learners reflecting on successive versions of their peer's texts.
