Try your hand at copy editing a short text provided in advance, then see how a seasoned editor works through it with lively and informative running commentary: explaining the edits, discussing alternative possibilities, pointing out how the editing tasks relate to the Editors Canada standards for copy editing, and recommending resources for further study.
Attendees will have opportunities to ask questions and will receive a copy of the professionally edited exercise with changes tracked.
This is an intermediate-level session; it is recommended that you have some knowledge of copy editing before taking this webinar—enough to know
- how copy editing differs from stylistic editing and proofreading;
