In this hands-on class, we’ll try out specific strategies to make your revision process more effective and efficient, so you can raise the level of any piece of writing you’re working on. We’ll talk about editing on the macro “content” level as well as fine-tuning words, sentences, and paragraphs to improve flow and clarity. By the end of this class, you’ll not only improve your own editing skills but also be a better judge of how well you are edited by others in the future. Three Tuesdays: April 16, 23, 30, 6 - 8 p.m.
