EI Teaches Editing 101 at Community College

October 6th, 2016 in EI News by April Michelle Davis 0

April Michelle Davis taught Editing 101: The Fundamentals of Copyediting to the students at the Northern Virginia Community College on January 30 and February 6. As a freelance editor, April Michelle designed this workshop to include discussions on topics specific to the field, editing skills, and business and IT requirements. The course material that April Michelle wrote can be used for self-paced learning, and it is a useful resource that can be referenced again and again. The exercises are another hands-on learning tool, and they add to the topics for discussions. As an added bonus, April Michelle offered individualized feedback on each post-test completed by the participants and April Michelle extended the offer to review the first 10 pages of an editing job and provide feedback for one year from the workshop date.
