Description:

Though the best writing benefits from the insights and feedback of others, there are numerous ways that you can effectively improve your own writing. With this goal in mind, this workshop will review a number of strategies for revising, editing, and proofreading your writing. We’ll begin by exploring techniques for tackling large-scale revisions for organization and clarity. Then, we’ll move on to consider methods for working with small-scale issues related to syntax, style, and grammar. In addition to learning a number of techniques, you will be provided with the opportunity to practice implementing these techniques on a writing sample and/or your own writing.
