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.

Moira Rayner White entered the work world as a social worker and later moved into social policy. In both professions, she found that her organizational skills, attention to detail, and love of words were pointing her in a new direction-the world of editing. Currently a freelance editor and writer with both public and private sector clients, she has a decade of experience editing print and electronic publications. Moira is past president of EAC.

Lunch and coffee breaks included.
