GPSC483 - Editing Principles for Graduate Students

Do you want to improve the organization of your writing but don’t know where to start? Do your professors or colleagues tell you that your written assignments lack clarity, and you need some help to fix the problem? Editing Principles for Graduate Students will explore editing techniques that help identify and correct problems with organization and clarity in your writing projects.

In this workshop we will explain proven editing principles including rearranging, adding, and deleting information, as well as evaluating coherence, language adjustment, redundancy, use of adverbs, and transitions in a text. Through various exercises, participants will be able to practice these editing principles and how to apply them in their writing projects.

Learning Objectives

By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:
1. Apply rewriting strategies to make a text convey a clearer idea
2. Utilize editing techniques to emphasize the ideas of the text
3. Discern what to look for when proofreading
