Crash Course: How to Think Like an Editor

Instructor: Heidi Hill


Understanding what a good editor does—how they read, what they look for, and the decisions they make when editing—will help you fine-tune your writing and self-editing skills; it will also improve your ability to communicate clearly with any professional editor. In this three-hour hands-on workshop, you’ll learn how to spot and fix common grammar, style, and content issues and practice editing sample pieces of writing and a selection of your own writing. You’ll also receive a list of helpful resources, a self-editing checklist, and feedback from the instructor, a seasoned editor.

Class Limit is 12.
