Professional Writing (TD2149)

Fri, 21 Sep 2018 9:30 AM - 11:30 AM

Location: Wine-Price Building


H.G. Wells said, "No passion in the world is equal to the passion to alter someone else's draft." Before you start changing someone else's writing, you must be able to back-up your choices.  In this session, you will learn how to move from proofreading to editing.  You'll begin to develop into a more effective editor by focusing on the appropriateness of writing for different situations and learning to work collaboratively with authors.

In this workshop, participants will gain:

  • An increased ability to accurately proofread documents in various genres and styles
  • An ability to work with writers in an editorial role

Facilitated by: Kristi Shackelford, Assistant Vice Provost, Academic Policy & Curriculum Development
