This section of ENGL 515, Advanced Professional Writing, will focus on professional editing and publishing. We'll consider the practice and theory which guides professional editors as they help writers move their work from draft to publication. Students will learn common best practices for editing, including strategies for managing the editing process, and common approaches to writing style.
Methods: classroom discussions; in-class editing demonstrations and reviews; collaborative group projects; editing peer workshops.
The core assignment will be an experiential editing project. Graduate students will have the option to substitute the practitioner-oriented final project with an academic project which calls on relevant scholarship.
See the syllabus for specific requirements.
Here are some sample editing plans and materials designed to help you build an effective proposal.
