Eight-Step Editing breaks the editorial process down into a series of tasks that will improve the readability of the final product. If you’re an editor, whatever your experience level (from novice to expert), this seminar will help you develop a systematic approach and identify functions you may have been performing only intuitively. If you’re a writer, the Eight-Step process will give you techniques for improving your manuscript before it goes to an editor.
