A sub-editing and proofreading Zoom webinar in November
I’m running a public subbing webinar across two half days (9.30am to 12.45pm AEST) on 16 and 17 November.
Only six spots are available to make sure everyone can become involved (this is a hands-on course where everyone can participate, ask questions and receive feedback).
Who am I?
I am a former Sydney Morning Herald editor with over 20 years of experience across print and online.
I’ve been teaching sub-editing and proofreading for over 10 years – first at the University of Technology, Sydney (UTS) and the Australian Centre for Independent Journalism (ACIJ) and then through my own business, where I focus on providing staff training for a wide range of organisations.
Who can benefit from a sub-editing and proofreading course?
- Communications, public relations and marketing professionals.
- Employees who contribute to websites and publications.
- Journalists, editors, sub-editors and bloggers.
Customised staff training – taught over Zoom or in person
If your team needs a refresher, then I can tailor a course to suit you. This includes creating exercises and examples based on your own content if you choose, and covering the specific issues that affect your organisation.
The training usually runs for two days, but shorter and longer courses can be customised for you.
