Editing can feel like the hardest part of writing a thesis – some dread it, others complain it’s dull. But it’s a skill and it can be incredibly productive, as any professional writer will affirm. This half-day workshop will explore the difference between editing and writing, it will examine the different kinds of editing and it will encourage the formation of editorial buddying relationships. There will be an emphasis on writing as a craft and how practical editorial skills can contribute to the process.
