Class Blurb:

Knowing HOW to edit is just as important as knowing WHAT to look for when you edit. During this four-week workshop, students will practice (homework) searching for and correcting common errors in punctuation, grammar, and usage, using MM’s seven editing strategies. This workshop covers common writing errors, like missing words and missing inflections, comma splices, and more. You will have the opportunity to practice using the strategies on your own worst errors.

MM will give feedback to all participants who submit homework on time. Think of homework as an opportunity for a mini-edit by MM.
