Course Description

This course explores advanced copy-editing concepts, with a special emphasis on stylistic (line) editing. It's designed for students who have completed Copy and Stylistic Editing I, and for editors who want to enhance their skills. Topics include understanding the differences between copy and stylistic editing; respecting the author's voice; adjusting language and reading level to suit the intended audience; editing figures and tables; and learning to clarify meaning, improve readability, and polish prose.

Notes

This course is fully online and asynchronous, meaning you typically will not have to be online at specific times. You will engage in course-related activities through online tools such as announcements, discussions, and email. Your course learning will be based on weekly module content and activities that you can go through independently. Note: there are still deadlines for assignment submissions, and you may be expected to participate in discussion board interactions with your peers on a regular basis.

Your instructor may also include occasional scheduled sessions for Q&As and other discussion activities, using web conferencing tools such as Zoom and Google Meet. More details will be included in your course outline available on the first day of class.
