Course Description

This course will train writers in editing their own texts for good grammar, punctuation, organization, length and tone, in a variety of media. In addition, they will develop their ability to recognize and correct errors in others' writing, as well as revise those texts for the requirements of whatever publication may be involved. The goal of editing is to ensure that the end result is the best it can be before it goes public, with quality of content and delivery meeting high technical and ethical standards.
