Editing Business Texts
Wednesday, July 12, 2017, 3–4:30 pm EDT
This is a BASIC SKILLS course
Instructor: James M. Fraleigh
Besides money, the business world runs on words—and it could use a great copyeditor. University presses publish business textbooks, firms issue white papers and annual reports, industry experts write guides for entering their profession, and CEOs compile their success stories into bestselling memoirs.
Join us for an introduction to editing these and other types of business text. You’ll learn what instructor James M. Fraleigh has discovered about getting into this field, putting existing editorial skills to work in new contexts, and understanding the specific needs of business texts, their authors, and any project stakeholders.
In this Master Class webinar, you will learn:
- The sorts of copy that fall into this category, including some you may not have considered
- The skills and resources that will help you make your clients’ copy shine
- How to put to work any subject matter expertise you have
- Common quirks and pitfalls and how to evade them
All Master Class times are in Eastern Time (ET). Login information for the webinar is sent, with any handouts, two days before the scheduled class.
