Synopsis of workshop:
Eight-Step Editing:
Simple, Proven Techniques to Improve Your Writing

This workshop is useful for anyone who writes, edits, or oversees the creation of informational texts. It has particular relevance for academic writers, who face a significant challenge in writing about complex subjects. Eight-Step Editing provides a “toolkit” of techniques for making a text more readable, and a systematic approach for using them. The Eight-Step Editing workshop combines theory with practice. Participants gain an understanding of the principles underlying each of the eight steps, and then apply those principles in exercises.
