New The Essence of Editing: Beginners' Workshop
Date: 6 June, 2020 (Saturday)
Time: 2PM to 4PM, with a fifteen-minute break in-between

Have you ever wanted to be an editor? Have you ever wondered what happens to a manuscript between the time it is accepted for publication and when it finally appears on bookshelves?

The Essence of Editing is a two-hour virtual workshop that takes you through the basic stages of editing, including developmental and substantial editing, line editing, copyediting and proofreading. You will learn about what a good editor should look out for, common mistakes and how to manage your relationship with authors.

This workshop will be conducted on Google Meet and includes a graded pre-workshop editing assignment, sample style guides and a list of useful resources. Slides from the workshop will not be made available, but participants are allowed to take notes.

Upon registration, we will email you instructions and the Google Meet code. Please register before 11AM on 5 June.

For inquiries, please email [email protected] or call 03-79541355.
