What you'll learn in this editing course:

This class will teach you different strategies for finding errors in writing before they wind up in print, online, or your manager’s inbox. Learn how to integrate proofreading into your writing process to polish anything from e-mails and cover letters to grad school applications and that novel you’re working on.

We’ll look at approaches to the editing process, break down the different levels of editing, and go over print and digital proofreading techniques. We’ll also discuss traditional proofreading symbols and how you can use stylesheets and checklists to keep track of all the details. The class includes several low-key exercises to let you try out multiple strategies for proofreading and decide which methods work best for you.

Refund Policy
If you're looking for a refund or class credit, you need to back out of the class a full week before it starts. (No exceptions!) We know it's draconian, but since we aren't charging an arm and a leg and have to buy all our materials in advance, it's kinda hard to deal with last-minute bailings.

We also can't transfer registrations to a future session of the class. Sorry!

Instead of dropping out if you have a schedule conflict, a better idea is to ask around and see if any of your friends want the spot. We can't give you a refund less than a week out, even if there's a wait list for the class. 

Regarding bad weather, we generally only cancel classes if the subway system stops running. If traveling during snowstorms might be an issue for you, please take this into account before registering for a class.

Course was excellent. Instructor cleary knows her stuff and covered quite a bit during the time we had. Exercises and examples given were very helpful.

Perfect for my needs. Teacher is obviously an expert. Class was thoughtfully organized. Even in only 1 1/2 hours, she offered lots of useful tips that I can start implementing immediately. Also, I found the space very comfortable.

The Editor’s Eye Level I: One Day Intensive

at Gotham Writers' Workshop - Flatiron 30 W 16 St, New York, New York 10011

Every writer needs a good editor to push the work to its best possible state. But your work won’t reach a professional editor unless it’s already in excellent shape. A dilemma, to be sure. That’s why you need to be a skilled editor of your own work. Perhaps your great ideas and stories are clouded by such things as clunky language, pallid verbs,...
