Eight-Step Editing teaches an approach to editing that helps editors and writers alike. This lively, hands-on workshop takes highly honed skills that are second nature to professional editors and breaks them down into a sequence of eight actions that will improve and clarify the text. Everyone who has ever changed a sentence in an email or a report can benefit from this workshop, as can experienced editors wanting a quick, strategic approach to editing.

Each participant will receive a workbook full of explanations, exercises, and helpful references.
