Proofreading

Date: 
Friday, May 3, 2013 - 20:00
Branch/Twig: 


Designed to provide an overview of professional proofreading, this seminar looks at how this skill fits into the process of producing print documents of all kinds. You'll learn the difference between copy editing and proofreading, and what to do (and not do) at each stage of production. You'll try your hand at proofreading short sample texts. Also covered: how computers affect proofreading, tips for spotting typos, and where to learn more if you decide to become a professional proofreader.

Prerequisite for this seminar: Copy Editing: A Hands-on Introduction (formerly called Copy Editing I) or equivalent editorial experience.

Jennie Worden's career has taken her from cartographical research for a publisher of maps to managing large-scale editorial projects for educational publishers in Canada and the U.S. She has taught editing and proofreading for George Brown College and the Chang School at Ryerson University. An editorial factotum, she is equally at home developing online course materials and proofreading academic indexes.
