Hurry - Course Starts Thursday!



Copy editors are not the stars of the show when it comes to publishing and news media but they do help the stars to shine. If you’ve thought about becoming a copy editor but you’re not sure how to go about it, this is the course for you. It’s also a fitting course for college students who want to work for the school newspaper, creative writers who want to self-edit their manuscripts, teachers needing to brush up on the real-world basics for their English courses, and businesspeople striving to sound as competent and together on the page as they possibly can. The heart of each session is a lecture that discusses important aspects of being a copy editor. Not only will students learn what a copy editor does and how she does it, they will also learn the crucial grammatical rules that will put them at the top of their game. Practice exercises allow them hands-on participation, and writing assignments reinforce each week’s skills.

Copy editors are sentence polishers—they delete redundancies, add words for clarity, re-cast passive sentences, fact-check, keep an ever-watchful eye out for consistency, and much more. In order to stay on track, a copy editor uses a variety of tools of the trade. Not only a dictionary but various stylebooks, computer software, and yes, sometimes even a red pencil. Writers count on copy editors to catch what might otherwise be embarrassing mistakes.

In order to make the leap into the real world of editing, students will need experience. The last session guides students onto a path that will help them to obtain experience and land a job.
