Editor in Residence: Editing and Proofreading 101

There is a lot more to editing than just checking grammar and spelling. It can include everything from checking that you have historical facts correct to making your humour funnier. There's a standard sequence of editing steps, and understanding the steps will make revising your own writing go more smoothly. 

Optional component: Participants will have the opportunity to have a brief review of a piece of their writing.
