Course Details

Ask any published writer and you will hear that a good editor is not just helpful, but essential. If you aspire to be an editor, this copyediting course will teach you the fundamentals of top-notch editing for both fiction and nonfiction. If you're already working as an editor, you'll not only brush up on your skills, but will also learn about recent advances in your chosen profession. If you're a writer, you will learn essential self-editing tools to give your manuscripts the professional look that publishers like to see.

Topics Covered

Week 1

Wednesday - Lesson 01

Have you ever wondered just what editors do with writers’ manuscripts? In this first lesson, you’ll find out. You’ll learn about the different types of editors—copyeditors, acquisition editors, developmental editors, production editors, and more—and exactly what their jobs entail. Because this course focuses on copyeditors, you’ll explore the three levels of copyediting: light, medium, and heavy. Finally, you’ll be introduced to five immutable laws of editing designed to make your job as a writer or an editor much easier.

Friday - Lesson 02

If you’ve ever seen a page marked up by an editor, you probably wondered what all those funny-looking marks and symbols meant. In today’s lesson, the mystery will be revealed. All the marks will be displayed and defined, and you’ll learn to use them as a sort of shorthand to fix errors. At the end of the lesson, you’ll have the opportunity to practice using your newly learned copyeditors’ marks in an entertaining exercise.

Week 2

Wednesday - Lesson 03

Today, you’ll be given some invaluable tools for increasing awareness of detail while you’re writing or editing. You’ll learn the theory behind these tools and how to use them to help you with accuracy and consistency. Then we’ll shift gears and delve into the intricacies of fiction writing and editing. You’ll take a close-up look at fiction writing devices such as narration, exposition, dialog, and point of view, and how each can be effectively incorporated into a manuscript.

Friday - Lesson 04

Grammar and punctuation are two subjects that usually evoke a big “Ugh!” Today’s lesson is a review of the basics of English grammar and punctuation, but the ugh-factor is conspicuously absent. You’ll revisit all those principles you learned in school, but in a light-hearted manner guaranteed to ease the pain. Proper grammar and punctuation are the hallmarks of good writing and editing, and you’ll be glad you had the chance to bring your knowledge up to date.

Week 3

Wednesday - Lesson 05

Today’s lesson will take you into the world of spelling, capitalization, and numbers. Most people are surprised to learn that there are actually rules governing how words are spelled and capitalized, and whether numbers should be spelled out or in digit form. You’ll learn not only the rules but also the exceptions. The benefit of knowing all the variations is that you’ll create consistency in your work, and your writing/editing will shine.

Friday - Lesson 06

This lesson explores all the writing pitfalls that can leave readers in a state of confusion. You’ll learn to recognize and fix mixed metaphors, garbled syntax, nominals, redundancies, and much more. You’ll also learn how to untangle overly wordy sentences, how to eliminate sexism, and how to create parallel structure. One of your goals as an editor or a writer is to produce clarity. This lesson will put you firmly on the path to achieving that goal.

Week 4

Wednesday - Lesson 07

When is it appropriate to use an abbreviation? When should you hyphenate words? Most people have a general knowledge of abbreviations and hyphens, but when it comes time to actually use them, they haven’t a clue. Today, you’ll learn all the ins and outs of the rules that guide their use. Then you’ll look closely at a less-glamorous but critical part of a manuscript: bibliographies, footnotes, citations, and endnotes. Editors and writers need to know how to properly reference quoted material within a manuscript, and the simple guidelines in today’s lesson will make the process easy.

Friday - Lesson 08

The relationship between an author and an editor is tricky at best. Throw a publisher into the works, and you have the potential for a powder keg of emotions. Today’s lesson shows you how to keep life harmonious within the author-editor-publisher relationship. Writers will be able to see things from the editor’s perspective, and editors will learn how it feels to be in the author’s shoes. Both of you will gain insight as well as a good brush-up of your people skills.

Week 5

Wednesday - Lesson 09

Today, you will learn about a different way to edit, which has become the norm rather than the exception. Editing manuscripts on-screen is the wave of the present, and in this lesson, you’ll explore the intricacies of making edits electronically, thereby eliminating the physical manuscript. You’ll then learn about copyright law, permissions, and fair use, all of which are essential for both editors and writers to become familiar with.

Friday - Lesson 10

Manuscripts have many parts beyond just the text. In this lesson, you’ll learn how to edit such peripheral material as tables, charts, and artwork. If you’ve ever seen a caption that didn’t fit the photo it was describing, you’ll understand the need for this extra scrutiny. Next you’ll learn all about the components of a book that come before and after the text, namely, the front and back matter. You’ll learn the function of parts such as the foreword, the table of contents, the index, and many more.

Week 6

Wednesday - Lesson 11

After five weeks of absorbing the technical elements of editing, it’s time to have some fun. Today, you’ll take a close look at the intricacies, inconsistencies, and irregularities in the English language. These are the things that defy classification but still are important to know. You’ll learn about oddball words and phrases, the do’s and don’t  of usage, and the many ways in which language is like a puzzle that’s never finished.

Friday - Lesson 12

This might be the most important lesson of all. Today, you will learn how to find work as an editor. Whether you’re interested in a staff position or want to begin a freelance career, all the help and advice you’ll need is in this lesson. You’ll also learn some basic business practices that will make your life as an editor easy.

The lure of travel is surpassed only by the inevitable desire to bring home pictures and share your adventures. Since the late 1800s when George Eastman produced the first traveling camera with the slogan, "You press the button, we do the rest," travel and photography have been eternally joined. With the added benefits of digital photography so readily available to consumers today, the field is full of new opportunities and new challenges.

You'll explore ways to carry your equipment, keep it safe from rain, and power it up on a long trip away from home.

Week 2

Wednesday - Lesson 03

In today's lesson, we'll concentrate on animals and how to capture their essence, whether they're in the wild or protected in cages. We'll look at equipment for zooming in and camera options for the best quality images. It's easy to get up close to a captive animal, but when you're in the wild, you'll need to know how to merge with nature so you can observe natural behavior, so we'll discuss that, too. We'll also go over shooting fast-moving animals like birds in flight, and how to use your camera to its best advantage.

Sometimes you'll find that there isn't much light when you're traveling and you'll need to know how to accommodate low light and mixed light situations. Today, we'll work with settings on your camera like customized white balance, ISO, and flash options to make sure you get the pictures you want. You'll also see the power of shooting in RAW, and the options available with digital editing. As we finish up this lesson, we'll even explore some options for cave photography, lightning, and fireworks!

Friday - Lesson 06

Visiting warm climates is a big part of many travel experiences, so in this lesson, you'll see how to protect your equipment from condensation and heat. You'll also see how to work within a rainforest environment. With the added control that manual exposure settings give you, you'll find the Sunny 16 Rule a great help. We'll also take a look at macro work and how to get the best shots of the details wherever you are.

Week 4

Wednesday - Lesson 07

In today's lesson, we'll move from warm climates into winter settings. Snow and ice make great backgrounds for dynamic photos, but they can present some exposure challenges, so we'll discuss how to solve any of those problems. We'll also look at shooting indoors, freezing action, and how to make the most of bad weather. When you finish here, you'll have a good idea of how to photograph star trails and the Northern Lights as well.

And you won't want to leave home without a passport, so we'll spend some time discussing how to take a great passport photo, too!

Friday - Lesson 12

Welcome home! In our final lesson, it's time to get your images organized so you can share the best of your images with friends and family.
