Become a professional editor
Editors are at the heart of great writing. They read critically; help writers communicate clearly and eloquently; check facts; and manage grammar, spelling, punctuation and style. They shape nearly everything we read, working in business, journalism, government, publishing, health care, education and the non-profit sector.
Our courses will help you become a key part of the writing and publishing process by sharpening your editorial eye, honing your proofreading skills, and teaching you to communicate effectively with writers.
