SA Writes: Proofreading & Editing your Work for the Seniors Anthology
1859 Kingston Road
Our two hour proofing workshop will be the final stage before our collective Seniors Write manuscript goes to print. Participants will engage in final edits of each others manuscripts as they carefully comb them for the ultimate time. At this stage, manuscript pieces have been through many drafts and revisions as well as structural and copy edits. The purpose of this workshop will be to catch any egregious spelling, syntax, and stylistic errors. This is not a workshop where pieces go through major changes or shifts, we are simply adding the finishing touches.
