From grad school applications to social media posts to job cover letters to dating profiles to meeting notes to reports to letters home, writing is a foundational part of every person's life. Despite this, we rarely spend time on the art of proofreading and editing. Being able to give feedback to others and improve your own writing will offer a big advantage in the classroom, workplace, or even in your personal life.

No matter how famous a writer is, whether a journalist or scientist or novelist, their work goes through multiple levels of editing before it arrives in print. They might have a friend or their spouse read it, then a colleague, then a professional editor. If people who have been professional writers for decades know they benefit from this process, wouldn't you, as well?

In this workshop, we'll focus on tools for self-editing, best practices for editing others, and strategies for peer workshop sessions in the classroom. We'll talk about what your grammar check should be catching, and what it, Grammarly or ChatGPT might miss. You'll also have the opportunity to get attention on a piece of your own writing that you bring to the workshop.
