Publishing Training Centre: Progress in Editorial Skills: Copy-Editing and Proofreading

28/02/2017 - 01/03/2017

£795

This intermediate-level three-step course takes print and digital copy-editing and proofreading knowledge to the next level, instilling confidence in dealing with the trickiest of editorial challenges.
 
Following on from Introduction to Editorial Skills, and using the same three-step blended learning approach, students will be able to work on-screen and on paper. Anyone who already has some publishing experience, knowledge of proofreading and copy-editing, or has completed the introductory course, will find this an invaluable way to develop their skills further. It has been created by a team of industry experts, all with experience of working within the largest UK publishing houses, and is taught by tutors who have all worked as senior copy-editors and proofreaders.
 
Anyone with some prior experience of working in book or journal publishing, wishing to build on existing copy-editing and proofreading skills, including editors, project editors, production editors and managing editors will benefit from this course.
 
Learn how to:

  • Feel confident applying copy-editing and proofreading skills to a variety of publishing contexts
  • Appreciate what constitutes excellent editorial judgement and how it might be attained
  • Understand how editorial decisions impact project budgets and schedules
  • Recognise the importance of appropriate author liaison throughout the editorial process.
