Description:

We all know how rare it is for good and clear writing to happen in first drafts. For most of us, most of the time, it’s the editing stage (or editing stages!) that turns a collection of good ideas into a good text. In this workshop, we’ll discuss and use best practices in editing, focusing especially on working on the sentence and paragraph level. In addition to working through issues of grammar and basic syntactical rules, we’ll work on deepening your understanding of how your choices of word order and structure affect your readers by analyzing and rewriting sample material. Focusing on Humanities and Social Sciences writing, this workshop will help you write prose that is correct, that is clear, and that communicates what you want to communicate.
