A new editing course is being offered by Queen’s University this winter. WRIT 265 is an online course aimed at students, grads, and those already in the workforce: Editing in Academic and Professional Contexts. Based on standards created by the Editors’ Association of Canada, the full-credit course is a 12 week introduction to substantive, stylistic, and copy editing.
For Who the Bell Tollsis a new grammar and style guide by David Marsh, production editor of Britain’s Guardian newspaper and coauthor of the paper’s publicly available style guide. Clearly the book comes out of Marsh’s work at The Guardian, reflecting many of the rules in the paper’s style guide.
