CONTENT

Have you written a first draft, but would like to improve both the content and style before you hand in your essay or paper? In this workshop, we will discuss the difference between content and style editing, and will then learn some methods you can use to improve both. We’ll look at reverse outlines, words and phrases that are too informal for academic English, punctuation, and proofreading. You’ll get a checklist to refer to when you are revising to help you turn in the most polished well-written text possible!

STUDENTS WILL

  • learn the difference between content and style editing and practice techniques for both;
  • improve their understanding of punctuation in English; and
  • know where to go when they need to check on issues related to editing.
