Further Proofreading – June

June 22 @ 10:00 am - 2:30 pm

Date: Thursday 22 June 2023
Time: 10:00 to 14:30 (with half hour break for lunch)

Publishing Scotland’s regular tutor Denise Cowle will deliver this 4-hour course in Glasgow (city centre venue to be confirmed). 

This course picks up where ‘Introduction to Proofreading’ left off. It assumes that delegates have attended this course or are familiar with the methods and techniques it contains.

 

Description

  • checking a page proof for structure and layout
  • dealing with widows, and with changes that could affect pagination
  • collating the proof corrections of three other people and resolving their disagreements
  • checking a revised proof to see that all the corrections have been made properly – and no new errors introduced!

CIEP upgrade training points
We are pleased to advise that Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading (CIEP) has confirmed this course is eligible for 2 CIEP upgrade training points.
