How imortant are proofreading and editing in our digital world?
Think of how many times you’re reading during the course of the day: Newspapers. Magazines. Billboard Ads. Books. Websites. Blog sites. Behind every successful sentence that catches your eye is a proofreader/editor hard at work.
If you love the process of creating a beautiful template of words, proofreading and editing jobs, on a freelance or full-time basis for publications, are available in abundance. Learn the skills to find a job that allows you to work your own hours and get paid a competitive salary.
This class will give you a complete primer on proofreading and editing. You’ll learn everything you need to know to establish yourself as a proofreader/editor, including proofreading symbols and editing marks. You’ll gain a sense of how to edit, with plenty of opportunity to practice on a variety of materials. You will also be given several punctuation and grammar tools. At the end of the course, you’ll learn about job opportunities for proofreaders and editors.
Bring a fine-point red pen! And a sharp mind.
