Whether it’s life story, non-fiction, fiction, or biography, the editing process starts the same way: you put yourself in the reader’s place.
In this course you’ll learn the golden rules of editing, and how to apply them to your own work. Together with Dr Alan Hancock, you’ll cover the essentials, like how to decide what needs cutting, and what can be expanded. You’ll also look at structure and theme, under-writing and over-writing. And on the way you’ll find out about sentence structure and the basics of grammar and punctuation.
You’ll get to know the work of some top writers — Margaret Attwood, Helen Garner, Alain de Botton, Bill Bryson and others — and find out how they put their work together. There will also be plenty of hands-on exercises to help you put the ideas into practice.
