In a world where speed is of the essence, there’s less time for the many layers of editing that have traditionally stood between writers and readers. Fortunately, if you write, you have a facility for language that you can use to edit. In this six-session course, you’ll gain the skills you need to polish your own prose.
You’ll learn how to break the “chain of expectations” and build the confidence that comes with being able to take a fresh viewpoint. With Merrill Perlman and your classmates, you’ll also concentrate on finding typos, word usage problems, context problems and other “micro” concepts.
You will build on the techniques you used in Week 1 to break the chain of expectations. In the live webinar and virtual coaching session, you will learn to compare what you’re reading to what you know — or think you know — and to listen for those speed bumps.
In the final webinar and virtual coaching session, you’ll take those concepts and expand them to story structure. You will learn how to read logically through a story, paying attention to flow and organization.
