Identify your strengths and gaps, learn to work to industry standards, and gain advanced knowledge and practice in copyediting with the support of an expert copyeditor.

As part of the Professional Editing Standards Certificate program, this course explores advanced topics in copyediting, including correcting grammar, punctuation, spelling, and usage; checking facts; applying editorial style; integrating visuals and non-English content; and checking for completeness.

This course is applicable to intermediate and advanced editors of English from all geographical locations. If you're looking to take an introductory editing course, we recommend WRIT 265: Editing in Academic and Professional Contexts, available through Queen's Arts and Science online.
