Advanced Editing and Proofreading

Course Overview


Documents being 'good with words' or 'fond of reading' won't cut it in today's business communications environment. To stand out, Participants need to be able to tear a document apart and rebuild it, know what to change and what to leave (and why), and have the confidence to drive communications change in Participants organisation. This editing masterclass is supremely practical - Participants fingers will become stained with red ink as Participants work on real work examples from the presenter's many years as a professional editor and proofreader.

Course Content


  • Analysis of five core document types (report, book, brochure, website, instructional)
  • Information architecture (pulling documents apart and rebuilding them better)
  • Sentence structure advanced ('trunks and branches' in practice)
  • Developing an editor's 'ear' (general knowledge, gut feel vs. learned rules, sources of information)
  • Punctuation (grammar rules and exceptions, changes over time)
  • Proofreader decision-making (when to make changes and when to leave it be)
  • Style guide design (understanding styles, making a practical guide that people will use)
  • Developing a proofreader's 'eye' (what to look for, improving Participants skills)
