Editing Professional and Business Documents

A practical, 8-hour seminar that will help you identify and correct common problems in the organization, content and language of professional and business documents in English.

We start with how the overall structure of a document and the flow within and between paragraphs influence the effectiveness of a text. We move down to problems in grammar and syntax at the sentence level, and then to decisions about phrasing and word choice. You’ll practice the principles introduced in the course with examples from actual (draft and edited) documents such as business letters, plans, reports, proposals, and promotional material. By the end of the workshop, you’ll have a better sense of what to focus on when you revise documents, and a toolbox of tips, guidelines and resources to help you edit.
