Electronic Copy-editing & Proofreading course

I have just completed the WriteArt copy-editing and proofreading online course. I found setting up the course and access to the necessary information easy and the instructions clear. The content of the course was comprehensive, helpful and informative. The prescribed text book 'The Natural Creative Process in Writing' was not only useful for the course but also for my own writing. Russell was friendly, helpful and instructive in the feedback sessions. I would definitely recommend this course for someone interested in going into copy-editing.

I found this course very helpful, particular in terms of thinking about the process of writing and copy-editing. It’s made me more aware of how I proofread texts and what kind of steps I take to ensure my job is done properly. It’s also prompted me to think about the writing process differently, something that has made writing feel more approachable for me. Russell was incredibly helpful and understanding which made the process easier and far less stressful than it could have been.

Electronic Copy-editing course & Proofreading course

This is a very serious course that made me realize the importance of having to develop a good command of grammar. The course is very comprehensive, and it requires grit, perseverance and commitment of time and resources on the part of the student. What I also liked about taking this course was the fact that the tutor was always available to offer assistance and encouragement, and he responded to queries promptly.
