Editing and Proofreading for PR

Training Overview

Make bad writing good, good writing great and spot embarrassing and costly mistakes without offending your clients and colleagues.

Editing and proofreading your own and other people's work can often feel like a thankless task. It's difficult, time consuming and few people appreciate being told their work contains mistakes or is not in the right style.

This course not only teaches you the necessary skills to produce clear, concise and well written copy yourself, it also helps you deal with potential problems arising from the original author thinking differently or not understanding key points of grammar.
