LISS DTP The Art and Craft of Editing (Online delivery)
7th December 2020 @ 10:00 AM - 5:45 PM
Editing can generate almost visceral anxiety in researchers. How should I go about it? What if I have to rewrite the whole thing? This highly practical online workshop clarifies the difference between writing and editing; examines different types of editing; acknowledges the emotional impact of self-editing and being edited by others; and offers strategies and frameworks to turn editing into a manageable, even enjoyable, part of the writing process. A 3 hour zoom session (divided into 2 hours/30 minute break/1 hour) is followed by 6 x 30min 1-1 consultation slots, bookable in advance on a first come, first served basis.
13:30-17:45 1-2-1 Sessions

A columnist, occasional broadcaster, author of ten novels (Sedition, her latest, is published by Virago), on the panel of judges for the Walter Scott Prize for Historical Fiction, an occasional book reviewer for, amongst other publications, the New York Times and a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy, she runs writing workshops on improving the quality, reach and impact of academic writing for all levels of HE. Long experience of the practical, emotional and organisational challenges of writing for deadlines and for different audiences informs all her workshops. She understands from first-hand the value of getting writing done and getting it done well.
