Writing a dedication page involves picking the names of people, naming the names and stating the reasons for dedications. Dedications vary in style, content and length so it all depends on what the writer needs to include.
A person needs to consider the process they had to go through to write a book or dissertation when picking a person. One can opt to include parents, sibling, colleague, friend or a lecturer. Typically, this is a personal decision for a writer. Naming the names is based on the writer's personal preferences and their relationship with the person to be included in the dedication. The dedication cannot be complete without adding the contribution of each person in the dedication.
