Effective Revision

Presenter: Writing Center Staff

This workshop teaches participants how to use revision techniques effectively. Unlike editing, where the writer merely fixes surface errors, revision involves seeing the work in a new light. In this workshop we will explore how to revise a piece, seeing it again in a new way. The first part of the workshop will focus on global revision; the second half will explore paragraph and sentence-level revision.

Dates/Times:

February 15, 2-3pm, CU Denver: Auraria Library Discovery Wall
