You Can Do It!
If you’ve been thinking about learning new skills that can help you to earn income or strengthen your knowledge, I will be teaching a ten-week copyediting class through Writer’s Digest University that starts on September 3, and here’s the description:
This workshop will provide training for aspiring copy editors in order to give them practical and marketable workplace skills. As a student in this certification course, you will progress from the fundamentals of grammar, form, and composition to advanced copyediting skills.
This certification course incorporates critiqued writing assignments and tools to communicate directly with your instructor and fellow students—to make sure that you are grasping the content. You will also have quizzes to check yourself along the way and a comprehensive test at the end of the course.
Students who complete all the assignments and pass the comprehensive test will receive documentation from Writer’s Digest of their completion of the Copyediting Certification Course. The lessons run for ten weeks and then there are an additional two weeks in which students have the chance to pass the final test.
