It doesn’t matter if you’re writing a book, a blog article, an essay, an email, or a website copy. The difference will remain crystal clear.
What is Deep Editing?
Deep editing has four stages, and they include;
1. The content itself
2. The structure or development of the work
3. The message it carries and how it carries it
4. The presentation. How you present the work.
All four steps above ensure a thorough job is done to make the work brilliant and wonderful to read. So our course covers,
STAGE 1: THE CONTENT EDIT
This stage addresses your written idea and facts around it.
STAGE 2: THE STRUCTURE/DEVELOPMENTAL EDIT
This stage reorganizes or builds the structure of your idea. Where necessary, it develops the idea too while working on its structure.
STAGE 3: THE STYLE/LINE EDIT
This stage ensures your idea is passed across or expressed with simple, clear, elegant, and evocative words and sentences. We eliminate rambling.
STAGE 4: THE PRESENTATION EDIT/PROOFREADING
In this stage, we remove any mistake or inconsistency that will give your work a bad presentation or kill its flow.
Most importantly, I will be with you every step of the way, helping you scale through every stage, and editing and writing side by side with you.
You’ll come out of this course with more skills and more confidence in writing and editing than you ever had before. And you’ll be able to take on any work you’re presented with
