Editing and Publishing in a Multi-modal World - LING292

This unit is designed to introduce students to the practices and techniques of editing, and to teach them how to apply them to a range of texts – for publication in print and digital formats – to best suit their intended audience. Students will learn about the different levels of editing, from proofreading to copyediting, substantive editing and indexing. The unit will help students develop a critical eye for details of correctness and consistency, as well as an understanding of layout and structural issues across diverse media that affect the readability of a text. The project management skills required as an editor will be developed in class learning activities, with students also given the opportunity to create a blog using the professional skills they have acquired.
