What you'll learn in this writing class:

Would you like the skills to find a job that allows you to work your own hours, and get paid a competitive salary? If so, then proofreading is for you. 

At this time in Chicago, proofreading work is available on a freelance or full-time basis for publications, typographers, corporations & a variety of other organizations. Proofreading, simply stated, is the editing of "proofs", finished sheets of typeset copy. You need to learn a standard system of marks and notations, acquire the sharp eye needed to spot mistakes & know when and how to consult references such as a dictionary or style book. This class will give you a complete primer on proofreading. You'll learn proofreading symbols & gain a sense of how to edit, with plenty of opportunity to practice on a variety of printed material. 

At the end of the course, you'll learn about job opportunities for proofreaders & how to find them. Bring a fine point red pen.
