Do I Still Need a Professional Editor?
An interesting and enlightening course. I am embarking on editing and proof reading offerings in my business, and this course helped tremendously.
I enjoyed it. It reaffirmed quite a few things I already new and gave me better insights into how writing is seen from an editor's point of view. It also gave me better insight into how the editrorial mindset works and the strategies editors employ when looking at a piece of writing.
Very well done. I really connected with the photography analogies used to describe the different layers of editing.
At the outset thank you for this enlightenment. Worth several revisits. As an editor, I would like to reiterate and take the summary of this course learning to the following checklists: a) Self-review checklist for writers b) Round 1 review checklist for editors
Hi there, I think this information is really fantastic and I took it all on board. However, I believe we need to physically have the opportunity to edit along with the presenter in this course, not just listening to lectures. My suggestion is you add into this course work that the student can participate in. Thanks so very much. PS: Please can I have a certificate to say I have completed this course.
