An Introduction to the Craft of Editing

Good writ­ing is not only free of typos and gram­mat­i­cal errors, but also clear and engag­ing for the intend­ed read­er. Taught by a team of expe­ri­enced edi­tors, this intro­duc­to­ry course presents an overview of the major tasks of an edi­tor (both for print and the web). The edit­ing ses­sions focus on proof­read­ing, copy­edit­ing, styl­is­tic edit­ing, sub­stan­tive and struc­tur­al edit­ing, as well as edit­ing as a career. The web edit­ing evening deals with the design of orga­ni­za­tion and nav­i­ga­tion sys­tems to sup­port find­ing infor­ma­tion on a website.
