The editing process is one of the most important stages of essay writing. The Writing Services guide has resources to help you with the organization and flow of ideas.
At this stage, it is also a good idea to go back to your assignment instructions and marking rubric to make sure you have addressed everything your instructor wants you to. Of course, you can go back to any step in the writing process to improve your work!
Proofreading means finding all of the sentence-level errors. This can include sentence structure, spelling, grammar, and punctuation. While many word processing programs can help identify errors, these programs aren’t perfect, so it’s up to you to proofread your assignment carefully before handing it in.
