Learn the core skills required to edit news stories, features, blogs and more to professional journalistic standards.

The two-day course will train you in the fundamental techniques of editing raw copy text, or even your own writing, into attention-grabbing and highly readable stories, as demanded by content publishers worldwide. It is aimed at a broad range of participants, from self-starter bloggers to experienced journalists who require formalised refresher training.

You will learn how to approach written copy critically and reshape it into compelling editorial content that people will want to read. Focusing on practical exercises and using real-world examples, the course also focuses on the different sub-editing approaches required for various types of material, and explains the distinctive subbing methods demanded by print and online media.

Requirements: Participants will need to bring their own laptop or tablet computer, with word processing software such as Word or Pages, to each class and have Internet access throughout the course to help with homework assignments, downloading copies of course material, and tutor support between classes.
