About the course

This course picks up where ‘Introduction to Copy-editing’ left off. It assumes that delegates have attended this course or are familiar with the methods and techniques it contains. Publishing Scotland’s regular tutor Cathy Tingle will deliver this 4-hour course in Edinburgh (at Scott House in Edinburgh city centre).

The course covers:

  • editing to meet legal requirements and to ensure inclusivity
  • improving narrative while being respectful of and sympathetic to the author’s ‘voice’
