Course Description

You will develop solid copy editing skills (clarity, correctness, conciseness, consistency) by learning to identify and correct content errors, problems in technical quality, style guide conformity and issues in language and thought. Then focus on proofreading skills including proofreader's marks, grammar and spelling errors and basic formatting. Topics may also include working with style sheets, proofing on screen versus proofing hard copy, and proofing electronically generated or scanned material for a variety of English-language texts. Learn through study, practice, peer and instructor feedback, and assignments. Access to a printer and a scanner or high quality camera device is required.
