How to Edit Your Own Writing
You’re done writing, but before you present your work to your publisher or readers–print or online–you want to polish. How do you switch from writer to editor? How do assess your work from 10,000 feet and sentence by sentence? How do you hunt down and eliminate inaccuracies, tighten flabby prose, and correct common mistakes in grammar and usage? The class will offer a thorough method of editing and will include editing exercises. We can also cover how to write killer headlines and photo captions, which is particularly useful for those writing for websites.
