Good with Words: Writing and Editing series

Welcome to “Writing and Editing: Revising,” the fourth and last course in the four-course Good with Words: Writing and Editing series.

This series of courses targets the writing side of that recommendation. The skills it focuses on include everything from how to arrange a complex set of information in a reader-friendly way, to how to give and receive high-quality feedback, to how to consistently hit deadlines. Here’s an brief overview of each of the four courses:

  • Word Choice and Word Order — Learn creative ways to enhance the clarity and effectiveness of your written words.
  • Structure and Organisation — Become a skilled architect of information, whether you’re putting together a major project or sending a quick text message.
  • Drafting — Develop strategies to help with what is often the most intimidating part of the writing process: getting started.
  • Revising — Master the important final step in producing high-quality written work: revising your words, sentences, and paragraphs.
