No previous knowledge is required for this one-day introduction
to proofreading. Through practical exercises using a variety of
accessible texts, the course aims to teach students the basic
proofreading skills and to help them feel comfortable with the
methods of ensuring that a document is correct in both content and
layout. The materials will be provided both on paper and digitally:
students are welcome to bring their own laptops if they wish to do
the exercises on screen. (Note: the course will use Adobe Reader
You will take away a folder of handouts and model answers to the
exercises, for reference and as examples of good practice.
People who write material and/or check written documents and
want to improve their proofreading skills. The course is suitable
for those with no previous formal experience or who have
responsibility for the presentation of documents and wish to
develop their skills in a more formal way.
Margaret Aherne is a
highly experienced editor, proofreader and project manager.
Margaret is also author of a book of proofreading exercises.
