Emphasis is  on the techniques and best practices for editing nonfiction and literary fiction, but a full range of  editorial topics will be covered, including editorial roles and skill sets; evaluating and acquiring  manuscripts; the editor-author relationship; editing for digital media; stylistic editing for different  genres; freelance and in-house expectations; and the editor’s role in other aspects of the  publishing workflow.

Notes

This course is fully online and asynchronous, meaning you typically will not have to be online at specific times. You will engage in course-related activities through online tools such as announcements, discussions, and email. Your course learning will be based on weekly module content and activities that you can go through independently. Note: there are still deadlines for assignment submissions, and you may be expected to participate in discussion board interactions with your peers on a regular basis.

Your instructor may also include occasional scheduled sessions for Q&As and other discussion activities, using web conferencing tools such as Zoom and Google Meet. More details will be included in your course outline available on the first day of class.

Students with experience in editing may be admitted by permission of the coordinators.
