The Editor’s Eye

Every writer needs a good editor to push the work to its best possible state. But your work won’t reach a professional editor unless it’s already in excellent shape. A dilemma, to be sure. That’s why you need to be a skilled editor of your own work.

Perhaps your great ideas and stories are clouded by such things as clunky language, timid verbs, excessive wordage, lack of immediacy, and other amateur mistakes. Perhaps your work is fairly good, but it doesn’t quite lift off and soar. What you need is a sharp-eyed editor: you.

This course will show writers (of both fiction and nonfiction) how to operate as their own best editor, which will make their work all the more marketable in the professional world.

Notes

This is a cross-genre course, applicable to any kind of writing.
