The course takes you behind the scenes, demystifying the editing process and providing practical techniques for taking a text to the next level. In hands-on sessions, we will investigate the levels of editing, and how to identify and deal with a range of problems in drafts before publication. We also take a realistic look at trends in digital publishing and the paths to success in the competitive world of contemporary publishing.
This six-week course presents the essentials of professional editing. Editing is a compelling and rewarding career and this is a hands-on introduction to the trade. The course is designed for writers who want to improve their drafts and for those looking to establish or refresh their editing skills. Using practical examples and sample texts, you will develop the skills you need in an increasingly globalised and outsourced publishing industry. Editors need business nous combined with technical know-how as well as a deep feel for language. In addition to weekly face-to-face sessions, participants will receive resources for further skill development and weekly feedback on course topics.
