Copyediting and Proofreading for Clients

I’ll be teaching an online course through The Christian PEN on
Copyediting and Proofreading for Clients
starting January 21.

This course is for those who wish to learn the basics of copyediting and proofreading for paying clients. You will learn:
-The difference between proofreading, line editing, substantive editing, and critiquing
-References to use for different types of manuscripts
-What to look for in nonfiction manuscripts
-What to look for in fiction manuscripts
-How to mark corrections using editor’s and proofreader’s symbols
-How to use Microsoft Word’s “Track Changes” feature for electronic editing
-Proofreading Scripture quotations
-How to make helpful suggestions for improvement.

8 lessons will be posted once a week, every Monday, through March 11. Active participation is encouraged but not required. (You can skim/lurk, or even just save the lessons–and other students’ responses–to review later.)

TCP Contributing Members $100
Online-only members $110
