活動內容Retelling the Story: Editing and Revising Your Technical Paper
We have seen that good technical writing can be considered a kind of story. Just as the best stories are told again and again and improve with each telling, writing a single draft of your paper is not the end of our tale. This workshop considers the critical “Part II” of writing: editing. Excellent writing usually requires multiple revisions. After reviewing basic writing and editing principles, we will work through exercises that address common problems. We will also examine the revision history of an actual document, to understand what changes were made and why. The goal is to develop a sound approach to editing and revising your manuscript, leading from first draft to a polished final version.
