An acknowledgment (also spelled acknowledgement) is a statement from an author thanking those who made an impactful difference to them as writers or helped publish the work at all – this may include inspiration, support, or other forms of assistance; publishers also sometimes issue acknowledgments thanking anyone involved with publishing writing in some capacity.

An acknowledgment may be either an official statement or a listing of names.

Acknowledging someone can include more personal words of thanks; alternatively, acknowledgement can be recognizing those responsible for publishing the work in question or who were instrumental in its production.

Acknowledging all who assisted with marketing or researching may occur through a statement from both the author and recipient.

An acknowledgement may also include those whose inspiration for this work was essential.

CJ McDaniel

CJ grew up admiring books. His family owned a small bookstore throughout his early childhood, and he would spend weekends flipping through book after book, always sure to read the ones that looked the most interesting. Not much has changed since then, except now some of those interesting books he picks off the shelf were designed by his company!
