Who should attend?

We would recommend that delegates take the Introduction to Copy-Editing course first, to understand the principles of copy-editing, before moving on to this more specialist course.



Cathy Tingle has many years' experience in academic and business publications. She trained in copy-editing and proofreading with Publishing Scotland under Margaret Aherne and is now an Advanced Professional Member of the CIEP.
