Editing for better communications

Date: Monday 24 and Thursday 27 April 2023
Time:
 10 am to 12 pm

Our regular tutor Cathy Tingle will deliver this course online over two days, with a total of 4 hours of online time, including short exercises for people to do on their own. 

The online delivery platform is Zoom .

 

About the course
This course (previously called Editing for Non-publishers) is aimed at people who don’t work in a publishing house but who work, or want to work, with documents that will be published in some form – for example newsletters, brochures, handbooks or websites.

Discussion includes:

  • Principles of copy-editing and how they can help any document
  • Using structure to make things clearer
  • What to check and how to check it
  • Achieving consistency in documents that have a number of contributors
  • Common problems in text, and how to fix them
  • Easy tips and tricks that professional copy-editors use.

Delegates will be asked to send in two samples of the sort of text they work on, or hope to work on, for tutor feedback and advice during the course.

All delegates will receive a copy of Cathy’s 62-page CIEP guide, ‘Editing for Communications Professionals‘, published in early 2023.

 

Who should attend
Anyone who produces documents and would like to improve them. Please do get in touch if you have any queries about whether this is the right course for you.
