Anyone with a good eye for detail and the ability to concentrate can learn how to proofread or copy edit. So, if you think this kind of work is for you we can certainly help you gain the skills you need in as little as two to three months.
The mind is a funny thing. When deep in the writing process, typing furiously to make sure everything is down on paper, it's easy to miss out words. These are usually little words like if, the, at, on and so on. Your mind has a habit of inserting them, even when they are not really there. And, we're not all perfect - it's rare for a piece or writing to be right first time. This is why it's so important to proofread and copy edit your work before you send it off to anyone or publish it yourself. This course will teach you how to do just that. You'll learn the tips and tricks of professional proofreaders and copy editors so your work goes out as error free as possible.

"I wanted to learn proofreading and copy editing as I'm changing my career at the end of the year. I'm going into writing and publishing (both my own and other people's work) as well as teaching creative writing at F.E Institutions.
