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. Because this course will be run online (on Zoom) in two separate sessions, there will be a chance for delegates to submit an assignment to the tutor after the first session in order to receive one-to-one feedback and advice.

The course covers:

  • recognition and resolution of common copy-editing errors
  • handling complex texts, including references and illustrations/figures
  • editing to meet legal requirements and to ensure inclusivity
  • improving narrative while being respectful of and sympathetic to the author's 'voice'
