The Writing Process DRAFT • CRITIQUE & REVISE • EDIT • PUBLISH

DRAFT

Write a version of your story, essay, poem, narrative, report, etc. Don't worry about technical aspects at this stage. Just get the ideas out!

CRITIQUE & REVISE

Read your draft aloud to someone and get specific feedback. Revision can incorporate all of the suggestions or none. Work to remove the unnecessary, add what's missing. Don't be afraid to do a rewrite. Then go through the cycle of draft – critique – revise, until the content is set.

EDIT

Spend time proofreading and editing the technical aspects of your writing so that it is polished and professional for your audience. Self-Edit, Peer-Edit, and Teacher-Edit before publication.

PUBLISH

Print your publication professionally using an online publisher like Blurb. You can also use a local printer to make beautiful copies publications of books and magazines for your audience. Create digital PDF copies to share for free with your students' families, too. Host a book launch for your work with fellow authors, parents and teachers.
