Tip of the week: Copyeditor training, part 1


Training for Copyeditors


The Editors' Association of Canada (EAC) offers certification for proofreaders, copy editors, stylistic editors, and structural editors. The study guides are available from Captus Press and exams take place in November. The exams aren't meant for new editors; they are for editors with at least five years' experience. The exams are hard and full of nit-picky things that editors are known for picking! You can get more details from www.editors.ca.

Thank you for the Awesome Tip


This is the lithesome elucidation for the copy editors in my generation. Thank you for the stupendous tip Mr. Erin Brenner. Especially, the cross-verification list that was provided by you is marvellous. Especially, the cross-check list gives me the precise idea about how to choose the a certification program on copy editing.

Thank you once again!!!

Respected results?


Are these certificates respected in the publishing/editing market? I am particularly interested in the MediaBistro program. However, due to the fact that it is not provided by an accredited school, I wonder how effective it will be in helping me acquire work. Is such a program a good option, or is the money better spent elsewhere?

Shouldn't the bullet above be "Creating and using style sheets" ?
