    Efficient editing and accurate proofreading ensure your copy achieves the desired communication impact while protecting your brand reputation. When it comes to effective communication, grammar, spelling and punctuation are critical to success.

    The pressure to turnaround work at speed means it is all too easy for mistakes to go unnoticed until they are published. This is especially true for the increasing number of professionals reviewing the work of others or self-editing as deadlines close in.

    This practical workshop covers the fundamental principles of proofreading and copy editing necessary to ensure that your writing is readable, persuasive and effective. It will help you identify and prevent common authoring mistakes, improve your editing process and develop professional proofreading skills in a supportive environment that allows you to practice while building confidence.
