As the final step in your writing process, you’re ready to complete revision and editing for your essay. Remember, you should complete your revision first, using any feedback from your professor, peers, and writing center consultants. Once you have your content revised, you’re ready for editing. Don’t forget that effective editing takes some time—and many passes at your text.
For additional information on what revision and editing can look like as a part of your writing process, be sure to watch these revising and editing videos from the Research learning area. You’ll get to see what content revision looks like in practice and learn about how you have to be careful of grammar checkers, such as the grammar checker in your word processing program. Even the helpful resource Grammarly should be questioned. If you have any doubts or questions about information you get from an online grammar checker, be sure to check with your professor.
