About This Course

Who this course is for:

  • Independent authors
  • Writers 
  • Newbie writers
  • Self-publishers

What you’ll learn: 

  • Students will learn how to proofread and self-edit their books and why it’s so important


  • Although a sample will be provided, having 2 to 5 pages of your own writing is recommended to identify some of your habits

When you publish, you tell the world who you are! Be sure that you are telling them you are the expert not just in the content (the what), show this in the quality (the how). Writers are often eager to publish and don’t take the steps necessary to ensure that their writing presents themselves professionally.

Have you finished your book? Ready to publish a blog? Releasing website content? Before you press that submit button and reveal your writing to the world, be sure to proofread and self-edit your material.

Our Promise to You

By the end of this course, you will have learned to proofread.

10 Day Money Back Guarantee. If you are unsatisfied for any reason, simply contact us and we’ll give you a full refund. No questions asked.

    A Great Course for the Beginner or Experienced Writer


    This course teaches tools and tricks of the trade for the new writer and some pertinent reminders for those of us who have been writing for a while, but have forgotten some of the rules or picked up some bad habits (as I have).

  2. Thorough, Well-Paced Course


    Leva provides a complete walk through of the components needed to self-edit. She accurately paces the modules into small chunks and an absorbable speed. Thank you for the course.

    The info in this course was 100% helpful without making the listener feel the time spent was a waste. Highly recommended.

    A valuable lesson for writers


    I thought the course was excellent. I took it as a proofreader, not a writer, and found it very useful.
