The editor is the silent hand that guides the writer, and the better the editor, the subtler their skill. If you’re looking to work behind the scenes as an editor, publisher, proofreader or subeditor, then this online unit in Writing, Editing and Publishing will help you to build up practical skills that you can apply to a range of roles.
You will be given a progression of ever more complex editing tasks to practise in workshops throughout the course, which will whip your language skills into shape and ensure you not only know how much and what to change, but what editing symbols to use and how to convey your changes to authors. You will get to know professional practices including the editorial process that’s involved in producing books and magazines, and discover the different roles and relationships at play between editors, writers, publishers and designers.
With the range of on-screen and on-page editing practices covered here you will be ready to work on a variety of publications.
