Essay Rescue: Eight Ways to Edit and Save an Essay

WANT to learn the skill of editing, of how and when to snip away unnecessary words?

How can you develop the sensibilities of prudent word choice, and the art of thinking critically? Learn how to read like a writer, with a more discerning and observant eye, and why you should make curiosity, wonder, and astonishment the cornerstone of your writing.

The highlight of each session is a critique of essay excerpts from participating students, with commentary and edits to take home.
