Course Description

The best writer will always admit that what really makes their prose stand out is good editing. This course will lay the groundwork for you to become a top-notch editor. You'll learn about copy editing and substantive editing, and you'll learn how to edit a piece of writing without losing the author's voice. Among the topics: eliminating jargon and fixing awkward sentences, the difference between editing normal and colloquial writing, and working with authors. You'll also learn how to avoid over-editing. In-class exercises will show you how to put your skills to work. The course will offer a list of useful reference tools for editors, as well as pointers and resources for those seeking a career in editing.
