Work on Scribus for Wits projects

You'll need to work in pairs to edit two chapters "on paper." Then, I will enter changes in Scribus (this will give me a sense of your editing processes, your mastery of editing symbols, and how well the content teaches me to use Scribus).
Chapter A+E: (Elizabeth, Meghan, Arria)
Chapter B+F: (Sarah, Princess)
Chapter C+G: (Michele, Sean)
Chapter D+H: (Michael, Melissa, Aubrie)
Chapter I+J: (Joe, Josh)
  • First pass -- think content. Is this clear? Does it communicate the important steps? Is it sequenced effectively? You may have to move, replace, or delete whole sections.
  • Second pass -- grammar, punctuation, word-choice improvements. Use Proper Editing Symbols Remember to look for clunky language, concision, and misused words
  • Third pass -- minor errors (including spelling, spacing, format).
  • Lastly - design. Here's some good info on basic design principles:


We'll discuss publication style decisions as they arise and list our decisions here. The Checklist of Editorial Preferences (Einsohn 423) might also be helpful.

Final Project Proposals

I'll meet with you individually about these as you work.
