About this course:
To be successful, an editor must draw from a broad base of skills, consider the entire publishing process, and be capable of developmentally editing a book into its best version. Developmental editing requires big picture thinking coupled with the ability to focus on critical areas that reflect on the entire text. Students learn how to choose a manuscript, developmentally edit the text, craft an editorial letter, and give feedback directly to the author in a video interview with the class.
Enrollment limited to 15 students. Visitors not permitted. $150 nonrefundable. Internet access required.
