What you'll learn in this editing course:

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, excessive wordage, lack of emotion, and other amateur mistakes. Perhaps your work is fairly good, but it doesn’t quite lift off and soar. What you need is a sharp-eyed editor: you.
 

This course will show writers (of both fiction and nonfiction) how to operate as their own best editor, which will make their work all the more marketable in the professional world.

Please Note:

This is a cross-genre course, applicable to any kind of writing.


Remote Learning

This course is available for "remote" learning and will be available to anyone with access to an internet device with a microphone (this includes most models of computers, tablets). Classes will take place with a "Live" instructor at the date/times listed below.

Upon registration, the instructor will send along additional information about how to log-on and participate in the class.

Refund Policy

Note: This provider has a temporary cancellation policy for COVID-19 related cancellations which is as follows: 

We offer refunds if students withdraw two or more days before a class begins. This comes with a $50 fee, but we will likely waive this for Coronavirus situations.   

---- 

Original cancellation policy (non-COVID-19):

All Classes (except One-days and Write-Ins)
For a refund or credit, contact us two business days or more before your class starts. You can either choose to hold a full credit with us good for one year on other Gotham classes OR you can opt for a refund less a $25 administrative fee and your $25 registration fee ($50 total).


If you need to withdraw after your class has started (or one business day before it starts), you won’t receive a refund, but you’re welcome to a Gotham credit less the price of Week 1 and your $25 registration fee, but we need to hear from you two business days or more before Week 2 meets for that to happen. After that point, no credits are available.


One-day Intensives
You may reschedule a One-day Intensive one time, if you notify us before the class begins.


If you notify us two business days or more before your class begins, rescheduling is free. If you notify us less than two business days before your class begins, there is a $25 rescheduling fee. If you don’t notify us until after your class begins, we cannot reschedule you.


You may get a refund (minus a $50 fee) if you notify us two business days or more before your class begins.


Write-Ins
If you withdraw two hours or more before it begins, you’re welcome to a full credit good for one year toward another Write-In. No refunds are available. If you simply don’t show up and don’t notify us in advance, you forfeit your money.


A few more things
Credits are valid for one year and cannot be changed into refunds down the road.Simply not attending class or notifying the instructor does not mean you've officially withdrawn.Some exceptions are made on a case-by-case basis for medical emergencies with a doctor's note.Refunds take up to six weeks to process.


Please understand, we can't issue a refund after classes have started, even if you miss your first class. Similarly, we can't offer you a credit one day before your second class or after that. We understand that other obligations get in the way of attending class, but these policies allow us to get other interested writers into class early enough to have a good experience, and this allows us to offer our classes at a reasonable price. 


Important Notes:

  • Students are allowed to join a class in the second week.
  • Only those who pay the tuition in full can be guaranteed a place in class.
  • Class dates and times may be subject to change. A substitute may be assigned or make-up classes added to the end of the term.

Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi there! Gotham welcomes English-speaking students from outside the U.S. in our New York City classes. However, they are not an accredited college or university and therefore do not have the forms necessary to obtain a student visa.

Really helpful class with good material and really good mini-lectures from a New York Times editor, who provided valuable insights into the writing and editing process. Highly recommended.
The Editor’s Eye Level I: Two Day Intensive
Reviewed by Jacqueline Y. on 5/18/2016
This was a very helpful course, especially for writers hoping to get not just better at writing, but also better at editing their own work as well as the work of others! The time flew by and we learned so much during this intensive. The techniques, excercises and discussions were all very well done!
