This half-day crash course will teach you the basics of copy-editing in the publishing industry today.
Attending this course will give you practical skills as well as industry insights. Self-editing will also improve your writing and make all your work more presentable, even if it’s just your CV.
** The session will take place in a room equipped with PCs. If you require a Mac, please bring it with you to this session.
