Mastering the CMOS, WEBINAR #1


What does it mean to master a style manual? Natalie explains the roles of familiarity and knowledge and three levels of intensity an editor can take to gain increased mastery of CMOS, including specific action steps. This first webinar also discusses the pros and cons of hard copy versus online subscription and how to navigate both before looking at some of the most-highlighted changes in the 17th edition. Finally, Natalie works through the first four chapters on the publishing process, highlighting new material and content helpful for any editor. This includes:

  • CMOS’s distinctions between types of editing
  • proofreading
  • parts of books
  • illustrations and tables
  • copyright and fair use

Each webinar also includes:

  • a quiz designed to test your familiarity with all things CMOS
  • extensive webinar outline for notes
  • recommended projects and reading for further study
