Explore the Art of Editing
Dr. Sandra Shattuck offers insights on "The Art of Editing: How to Self-Edit, Get Feedback, and Choose an Editor" at the next Write Right Lunch & Learn program on Tuesday, June 11, at noon at the Main Library.
See if you recognize any of the following scenarios:
- Your manuscript is two-thirds finished, and you're struggling to reach the finish line.
- You've revised and re-read your piece so many times that you no longer can see its merits or challenges.
- You have an outline for an article but do not have the time for the necessary research.
- You've finished your writing but have a nagging suspicion that grammar check did not catch all the comma splices and unnecessary commas, your grammatical Achilles' heel.
What's a writer to do?
This workshop will offer helpful tips on how to self-edit, how to get the feedback you need, and how to find and choose an editor appropriate for your work.
