If you have a reasonable grasp of English but keep getting caught with bloopers on your blog or in your newsletter, or if you’ve been tasked with proofreading other people’s work and don’t know good systems for doing so, this course is for you.

Learn the best methods for finding and fixing mistakes, which writing situations tend to trip up proofreaders the most, tools that you should and shouldn’t use to get the words and punctuation right, and ways to get better and better at producing error-free text.

A diagnostic test at the outset helps you identify your proofreading weaknesses, and two practice tests at the end give you the chance to try out your new skills and see how well you did.

The instructor, Marcia Yudkin, has coached writers and business owners for decades. She has had her own work proofread (and occasionally mangled) by professionals at top American book publishers and magazines. She also worked as a freelance editor and advisor for a small press for many years.
