Editing, Revising, and Polishing Business Writing

December 14, 2023
1:00 pm - 5:00 pm


Once you have drafted and composed your written communication, you can move into the editing stage. Editing is deciding what changes to make, revising is making the changes, and polishing is making the message sound good. One slipped word or one convoluted sentence can send a miscommunication and create a misunderstanding. Learn to avoid the pitfalls of wordiness, misplaced verbs and modifiers, unrepresented pronouns, inappropriate tone, unfortunate informality, ill-advised content, and other writing issues.

Learning Objectives
  1. Recognize editing concerns in business writing
  2. Recommend revisions to emails, proposals, and other documents
  3. Apply polishing techniques to business writing
Cost: FREE to employees of Signatory Contractors and Associate Members.

CEU: 0.4

Instructor: Karen Anderson
