Errors are funny only in other people’s reports, brochures, memos, websites, or emails. Everyone responsible for written material needs to know how to proofread.
Topics in this course include the proofreading process, the difference between proofreading and other editing stages, how to mark hard-copy and electronic proofs for correction, and when and how to query issues that fall outside a proofreader’s responsibilities.
The final assignment for this course is due six days after the course ends (12 days after the last date listed in the schedule).
Note: Basic Proofreading (EDIT220) was the previous version and is equivalent to this course.
