Editing Checklist

A picture of the editing checklist.

Remember, your spell checker and grammar checker on your word processing program are valuable tools, but they miss a lot! Pay close attention as you run both your spell checker and grammar checker, questioning them as you go.

Once you have finished running these programs, it’s time for you to get to work as an editor. Click on the image below for an interactive PDF version of the checklist above to help you focus on some key issues as you edit. In some browsers, you may need to download or save this file to be able to utilize all of its functionality.
