To revise means to evaluate your draft and make changes in order to improve it.

For many writers, revising is the most important (and difficult) part of the writing process.

You can use the WriteSite to help you revise in two ways: Revise It leads you step by step through an actual revision of your draft, and Check Your Work shows you what to look for when revising and helps you compile a list of things to change.

In addition, many writers find it helpful while revising to ask for opinions and suggestions from an impartial reader, so we have collected a few suggestions on who to ask for help.
