Eight-Step Editing Workshop:
For Graduate Students & Postdocs
Hosted by Faculty of Graduate Studies
Please register for this workshop
October 18, 2018
12:30-4:30 p.m.
519 Kaneff Tower

Eight-Step Editing provides participants with a practical and versatile “toolkit” to help improve the texts they write and/or edit. The techniques can be applied to a wide range of informational documents, including reports, memos, summaries, proposals, observations, analyses, instructions, web content, and more. Using a step-by-step process, the program identifies the most common factors in writing that become obstacles for readers. It not only helps you recognize the problems, it shows you quick and simple techniques for fixing them.

Eight-Step Editing combines theory with practice. Participants gain an understanding of the principles underlying each of the eight steps, and then apply those principles in exercises. Some of the exercises will be generic, on the assumption that if participants can apply a learning to other people’s writing, they can also apply it to their own. Other exercises could be taken directly from materials provided by the client.
