    How to Edit & Proofread Your Own Work

    With Stephanie Mojica. We will discuss ways to actually read your own work to find errors and create your own writer’s style guide. The class will go over common errors even seasoned writers make, and why spell check programs are not always reliable resources for proofreading and editing. The content applies to writers of fiction, nonfiction, poetry, stageplays, and screenplays of any length. Register now for How to Edit & Proofread Your Own Work.
