Online Editing Tutorial

Sonia Jaffe Robbins runs an editing workshop in the Journalism Department of New York University. She puts her course materials on line in what makes a really interesting site if you want to learn about the finer points of sharpening your written style. She includes 'Banished words', editing tips and issues, hyphenation, spelling FAQs, and lots of juicy links to quizzes and tests - plus you can take the 'Gullibility Test' at the Museum of Hoaxes. There's even a link to a site where you can check if people are dead yet or not. Even if you simply read the course materials, you will learn a lot about improving your writing skills - and you should have plenty of fun too.
