Eight-Step Editing

Saturday, April 28, 2018, 10 am–5 pm

Eight-Step Editing teaches an approach to editing that helps writers and editors alike. Everyone who has ever clarified a sentence in an email, a report, or another written work can benefit from this workshop. 

This newly updated workshop breaks down the task of editing into a sequence of actions to improve and clarify text while retaining the author’s voice. 

Workshop outline:
Step 1: Shorten sentences.
Step 2: Take out the trash.
Step 3: Deflate fat words.
Step 4: Reduce negatives.
Step 5: Eliminate the equations. 
Step 6: Activate the passives.
Step 7: Lead with strength.
Step 8: Tune up topic sentences.

Participants will receive a workbook with exercises and further explanations of the eight steps. Please note that registration rates include a $10 charge to cover the cost of producing the workbook.
