Editing is a foundational skill for taking your writing to the next level. The editing process ensures that the key ideas that you present in your writing can be understood clearly by your reader, allowing your message to have a higher impact. This workshop outlines a process that takes you through editing content and organization, through to editing grammar and smaller details in your paper. It also includes information that will support you in the editing process if you are writing in a language that is not your mother tongue.
