Description: Post-Writing Stage-Editing your work for Style. This is a very important stage in your writing and is often given less time than the Writing Stage. Here we examine ways to edit your work for style including redundant language (i.e. unnecessary words or sentences), appropriate vocabulary, lengthy sentences, etc. This is a good opportunity for you to practice the skills of editing by drawing on published examples of text. You are also welcome to bring along your own work for peer-editing.
