  • What is copy editing and how is it different from other types of language review?
  • When should you consider editing your text? Is it fit for the purpose?
  • Preliminary questions: What is the text type? Who is your target audience? What channel(s) are you using?
  • Copy-edit checklist: What are some of the most important editing techniques you can use to add value to your communications?

PART II: Putting it into practice

This part will focus on more practical applications of the points discussed in Part I.

  • Participants are encouraged to provide their own material for discussion. This can be submitted in advance.

At the end of the session, you will have a clearer understanding of what copy-editing is, when you should consider editing, and what editing techniques you can use.
