  • choose a target audience or publication
  • revise to refine concepts in their piece.

Retreat B participants

  • are near the end of the writing process and have a completed draft
  • edit for accurate and effective documentation
  • revise for a target journal or publication
  • edit for clarity, economy, style, and precision.
