Revision is a necessary step in the academic writing process. This workshop addresses techniques for revisions at all levels with an emphasis on sentence structure, paragraph structure, precision of language, and proper tone.
Real revision is more than making a few minor adjustments. It requires being open to the idea that parts of your paper (and sometimes the entire paper) might need to be re-thought and re-written. Editing is the process of fixing minor problems related to presentation. Proofreading is the correction of mistakes in punctuation, spelling, and grammar.
