Introduction to Editing




In this hands-on session, you'll practice the invisible art of editing, from global editing to line editing. 

In the process, you'll gain a stronger sense of what your piece is about and then use this knowledge to best to consider how you are reaching your reader. With a few exercises, we'll learn key strategies you can use to edit the work of other writers or to revise your own work, while learning about pitfalls that might complicate your progress. 

Each writer will leave with a better understanding of their piece and the steps they need to take to make it the best that it can be.
