Copy Editing II with Moira White (Nov 12, Nov 19)
 Description

“Superb copyeditors need good judgment as much as language skills, and they must vary their decisions depending on the author they are working with and the conventions of his particular subject area.” (Rosemary Shipton in Darcy Cullen, ed., Editors, Scholars, and the Social Text)

Copy editors constantly need to make editorial and process decisions. Not only does the English language allow a variety of ways to edit most texts, but also clients’ needs vary from project to project. Copy editors can also offer value through their wide knowledge of language and content, as well as their skill with electronic editing tools.

In this seminar, you’ll practice on a variety of documents and learn tips and tricks from an experienced copy editor.

You’ll leave with the confidence to tune your edit appropriately and sensitively, customizing each document to its genre and situation. You’ll also leave with a detailed handbook that covers the seminar content and more.

  • Where copy editing fits in the editorial process.
  • When and how to make decisions on grammar, punctuation, tone, length, language level, etc.
  • What value add-ons you can offer, such as creating a style sheet, checking facts, correcting usage, and formatting documents.
  • How to work efficiently using checklists, consistency-checking software, and Word’s editorial tools.
  • Apply plain language techniques.
  • Hone your technique for spotting errors.
  • Learn more about stylistic considerations.
  • Determine how much to edit.

This seminar is delivered on two consecutive Fridays betwen 9:00am and 12:00pm EDT.
