Seminar Description

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 to editing 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.

  • Step one: shorten sentences
  • Step two: take out the trash
  • Step three: eliminate the negatives
  • Step four: deflate long words and phrases
  • Step five: eliminate the equations
  • Step six: activate the passives
  • Step seven: lead with strength
  • Step eight: parade your paragraphs
