Every writer knows how painful the editing process can be: hours of effort, returned with hundreds of tiny red marks that feel more like stab wounds than corrections. Editors, on the other hand, share one common goal: clear communication with the reader. And while some editors remain distant throughout the process, others may also wish to foster collaborative, collegial relationships with their writers and perhaps train them to become editors themselves one day. Whether you are a supervisor, a colleague, or an instructor, this webinar will change the way you edit by shifting your focus away from the rules and towards the review, the relationship, and the reader. We will identify best practices to use when working in a long-term relationship with writers who need to cultivate their skills. We will show you how to diagnose common problems so you can train your writers to correct themselves. And we will turn the magnifying glass away from the manuscript and towards ourselves to see what we can do to make the document more accessible. Finally, this session provides effective strategies for serious retooling of two different kinds and reminders for best management of files. - - Objectives—At the completion of this webinar you will be able to: - - Develop concrete strategies for long-term cultivation of writers with different attitudes and goals. - Diagnose problems and offer solutions, not corrections.Identify and practice the three cardinal rules of editing. - Receive two tips for major retooling and several tidbits for file management.
