WWU’s Professional Editing Program begins this fall; info session set for June 26

Western Today staff

This fall, Western Washington University’s Extended Education will offer “Professional Editing: For Print and Online,” a nine-month program that gives participants a broad knowledge of techniques used in a variety of editing positions.

The program will benefit those who want to work as freelance editors, publication staff members or authors of their own print and online projects.

The courses will cover copyediting, proofreading and editing visual components such as page design. Spring quarter culminates the program with an advanced editing course. Participants will incorporate the text and visual editing skills they have learned and progress to help envision a publication and work with writers to fill holes in stories, use accurate grammar or reshape their writing.

Join us for an information session at 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, June 26 at Village Books in Fairhaven.
