What Our Students Say
Editors love The PEN Institute courses!
Editing Children's Books 101 was one of the best courses I've taken through The PEN Institute to help me expand the types of editing I'm comfortable with. Linda Harris does a wonderful job of explaining the different levels of children's books and understanding the world of editing them. Each lesson was fully explained and had very relevant homework assignments, culminating with a practice edit of a children's story along with feedback of the edits. That in itself was extremely beneficial. I would highly recommend this course to anyone interested in exploring editing children's books.
