Course Description

You care about details such as subject-verb disagreement and the placement of commas. Now people depend on you to tweak their prose to perfection. The Intensive Introduction to Copyediting course will help you meet that challenge.  You’ll be introduced to basic editorial marks, as well as the GPO and Chicago manuals, and will practice editing with both short and long exercises. You’ll also review grammar and learn to:

  • Impose a consistent style
  • Combat wordiness
  • Eliminate misplaced modifiers and other grammatical errors
  • Participants receive Substance & Style or equivalent

NOTE: After taking this course, participants should work with what they learned for at least six months before taking an advanced editing workshop.
