Getting from raw writing to polished piece is often a frustrating mystery to new writers.
Crafting an article or narrative for publication involves an entirely different skillset than the act of writing itself. In this week’s lesson, we’ll discuss the difference between the creator and the editor. We’ll cover tips for revision, and how revision is different from proofreading. And for fun: with guest teacher, author Steve Edwards, we’ll look at two essays in their original raw form, and compare them to their published versions.
With help from the wider group, you’ll start working on revisions of your own essay, with an eye to all the things we’ve discussed so far. You’ve got two full weeks to play with revisions.
