Whether you’re writing a novel, a blog post, or a pitch deck, chances are it’s not going to come out perfectly on the first try—or the second, or even the third. There will be typos, of course, and plenty of grammatical errors. Your word processing software can help a bit with those. But these problems represent only the tip of the iceberg. You’ll need to watch out for clichés (like the iceberg metaphor!), leaps in logic, awkward transitions, shifting points of view, and a whole host of other common issues. Producing quality writing is a process of endless tinkering and fine-tuning, and editors play a crucial role in this process. The good news is, you can teach yourself to be your own editor. In this interactive workshop, we’ll share tips and tricks for how to review your own work objectively and revise like a pro. Come ready to write—and re-write, of course.
