The drafting stages

The following processes make up the drafting stages:

  • first draft
  • additional reading
  • redraft
  • edit for meaning & coherence
  • proof reading.

This is the writing stage of your essay. This stage takes you through the process of producing a final piece of work. It is very important that you draft, redraft, edit and proof read your work. Many students hand in work that is more like a first draft than a final draft.

This section will take look at drafting, redrafting and editing your work.
