This fourth and final course in the “Good with Words: Writing and Editing” series will help you master perhaps the most important step in the writing process: revising. You’ll learn about the difference between editing and proofreading. You’ll practice “un-numbing the numbers” so that data and statistics you use are clear and compelling. And you’ll be introduced to a framework for giving and receiving feedback that helpfully systematizes what should be cut and what should be kept from each draft.

TOP REVIEWS FROM WRITING AND EDITING: REVISING
I did forget to leave this feedback on a previous review I gave, but I wish I had known this course was 4 of 4 prior to joining this class. I would have enjoyed taking the series in order.
I have always had a passion and skill for editing. This course honed my skills and improved my existing knowledge. Teachers are awesome and know their stuff.
Excellent course. Professor Barry brings English to life through engaging lectures and video presentations, to recommended readings, the course flows.
Mr. Barry is a great teacher. He explained the whole "menu of concepts" clearly, warmly and well. I'm very satisfied with this course.
