Washburn Review editing experience

I was a little nervous editing for the Review because I felt like as an editing student I really needed to know what I was doing. The student worker that was in there helped me a lot and reassured me in my editing skills.

I edited around 4 stories. I was surprised when editing my first story because there were a lot of AP Style mistakes. The rest of the stories did not have as many and they were all well written. It was hard for me when reading an opinion piece because I kept wanting to make AP Style changes that aren't necessary in opinion pieces.

I feel like I learned a lot and that it was a good experience overall to further my knowledge with AP Style.
