Proofreading 101 Group Course

$119.00

Proofreading 101 is designed to prepare you to proofread books based on The Chicago Manual of Style or to sharpen your proofreading skills as an editor. Some editors wish to proofread to widen their reach, but they need a review of punctuation, usage, grammar, and spelling. This course covers these four areas in detail based on Kathy Ide’s Proofreading Secrets of Best-Selling Authors. Although the book is not required for the course, it is recommended.

Going beyond the book’s content, students will get real-life practice with homework and quizzes designed to test their knowledge. The instructor’s feedback and group discussions make this an engaging way to hone your proofreading skills.
