In Editing 101, we talked about the importance of editing, building a style guide, and setting up a quality-control process. For our October webinar, we’ll take your editing to the next level by focusing on rewriting and revising text.

Using real-life examples from your proposals, reports, and marketing materials, we’ll employ editing best practices to make the content clearer and more cohesive and concise. But editing isn’t just about cutting and deleting—it’s also knowing when a conversation with your author is better than sending comments through tracked changes. To help, we’ll discuss conversation starters for thoughtfully and sensitively working with authors.

Learning Objectives

During this webinar, participants will learn:

  1. Editing and proofreading techniques to improve the readability of content
  2. Ways to identify weak words and options for replacing them
  3. Conversation starters for working with reluctant authors

Want to get an editor’s perspective on your materials? Please send your sample to jmcgovernSMPS@gmail.com by October 1, 2017, and it may be given a makeover during the Editing 201 webinar!
