Editing Your Work


Editing Your Work

Revision is a key part of the writing process. After writing a first draft take some time to review the draft and think of how a change in words or structure may improve the clarity of your writing.

There are several tools you can use to help with editing your writing

  • To catch basic grammar issues and spelling mistakes as you write, use: Grammarly 
  • Track Changes in  Microsoft Word allows you to get feedback from others (e.g. comments and revisions from instructors and tutors who use Track Changes to insert their changes) via email.
  • If you use Word Online from Office 365 and store documents on OneDrive, you can share documents with faculty and tutors so they may insert comments and revisions.without the need for emailing multiple versions of files.
