Producing crisp, error-free prose presents a polished image and helps you stand out in a crowd of writers. If you have a great editor, they’ll appreciate a clean draft. And if you’re working without a net, editing yourself is crucial. We’ll talk tips and tricks, whether you’re writing for a publication, submitting a manuscript, or re-reading your own words before you hit post.
The goal of this workshop is to give you tools to become a better editor for your own work. We’ll see how to spot glitches, what to question, and where to find answers. We’ll cover typos, grammar, and usage. We’ll talk common pitfalls and frequent flubs. Toward the end of the workshop, we’ll put into practice a bit of what we’ve learned: I’ll provide a few brief writing samples and we’ll tackle the editing, addressing questions as they arise.
