Beginner Beginner

Do you have a sharp eye for errors in grammar, punctuation, spelling (without spellcheck!), and usage as you read newspapers, magazines, work reports, or books? Would you like to know how you can put that talent to work for you? Here’s your chance to find out what is involved in being an editor or proofreader. Learn from a colleague who has provided editing and proofreading services to publications, law and PR firms, businesses, websites, and individuals on a wide range of topics. The class will cover essential characteristics and skills, processes, tools and resources, pitfalls, and more, including examples of important style manuals.
