What you'll learn in this writing class:

How imortant are proofreading and editing in our digital world?

Think of how many times you’re reading during the course of the day: Newspapers. Magazines. Billboard Ads. Books. Websites. Blog sites.  Behind every successful sentence that catches your eye is a proofreader/editor hard at work.

If you love the process of creating a beautiful template of words, proofreading and editing jobs, on a freelance or full-time basis for publications, are available in abundance. Learn the skills to find a job that allows you to work your own hours and get paid a competitive salary.

This class will give you a complete primer on proofreading and editing. You’ll learn everything you need to know to establish yourself as a proofreader/editor, including proofreading symbols and editing marks. You’ll gain a sense of how to edit, with plenty of opportunity to practice on a variety of materials. You will also be given several punctuation and grammar tools. At the end of the course, you’ll learn about job opportunities for proofreaders and editors.

Bring a fine-point red pen! And a sharp mind.

Material Fee: $20

Alison gave me all I needed to know at this time. And she went over and above holding the class for just me and coming to my home because we had trouble connecting online. Larger print visuals would've been good for aging eyes. Appreciated her excellent effort to make this happen.

Not the best online experience but perhaps the live class is better.

Alison Moran, the Proofreading Instructor for this virtual class was excellent. She gave us examples to practice on, quizzes to test our knowledge, and a PowerPoint full of information to jumpstart our endeavor. She was patient, I never felt rushed, and stayed online until all our questions were answered. I now feel confident updating my resume and knowing where to look for proofreading jobs. Thanks Discovery Center & Alison Moran for offering such a valuable class!
