What is content editing?
Content editing is where one looks at tone, fairness, courtesy, and requirements. In content editing, we are looking for the meaning of what we have said, not whether it is grammatically correct. This type of editing can enhance your writing to make sure you’re getting your point across and that there is no miscommunication in your writing. This video will review rules for word choice, comma splicing, and writing in active vs. passive voice.
