Self-Editing: Tips & Tools for Editing Yourself
Self-editing is an essential part of the writing process, but not every writer looks forward to revising their own words critically. Some writers skip the self-editing process altogether, hoping that readers, agents, and friends will see beyond the typo and feel their story instead. Rarely does this approach work. However, self-editing can be fun and something to look forward to with the right tools, tips, and training. In this OnDemand webinar, Aria Gmitter teaches a valuable framework for self-editing books, blogs, and pitch letters. She shares the tools that help spot grammatical errors and structural flaws with you. She explains why it’s crucial to self-edit critically, from start to finish, and how the editing process will help you become a better writer with time, skill, and practice.
