The Most Common Editing Errors--And What To Do About Them
Presented by Bill Jolliff, Professor of English
Most of us don't worry too much about a writing mistake or two. It’s what we have to say that really matters, right?
Well, yes--and no.
The bad news is that too many editing errors can keep our readers from taking us--and our ideas--seriously. The good news is that most of our errors are relatively easy to fix, once we figure out which ones we're prone to make.
In this workshop, Bill will identify the 10 errors that professors are most likely to mark on student work, and he'll demonstrate how to fix them.
