What’s better than one immersion editing class? Two immersion editing classes, of course. The fun begins on September 15 for Going Deeper: Immerse Yourself in Immersion Editing. Then join me again for Immersion in Proofreading and Copyediting on Tuesday evenings, October 9 through November 13.
Let’s take a closer look at each course.
This is the foundational class for immersion editing and what it truly means to go deeper. This one-day intensive is a game-changer for editors of all levels, authors, project managers, and basically anyone who works with writing.
We’ll discuss how immersion editing is like scuba diving and what it has in common with servant leadership, emotional intelligence, and even “whispering.” It’s a whole new—and better—way to take authors, manuscripts, and your own career to the next level.
Tuesdays, October 9 through November 13
Editors, this is the nitty-gritty, in-the-trenches, getting-your-hands-dirty class you’ve all been waiting for. In this in-depth six-week course, we’ll explore all sorts of “secrets” about proofreading and copyediting—from mechanics and style sheets to best practices and tips. I’ll walk through sample edits to give you a glimpse into my mind. (Scary stuff—I know.) And you’ll get plenty of hands-on exercises to practice what you’ve learned. Authors, come join us too if you’ve ever wanted to be your own first editor or perhaps get a foot in the editorial door.
With both courses, what excites me the most is that they bring like-minded people together in our growing network of immersion editors. It’s a bit of a revolution, and it’s incredible to see how it’s growing.
I wholeheartedly believe that editors learn best from each other. In these classes, I swear I learn more from the participants than they learn from me. It’s an enlightening experience for all.
Immersion editing is about making the world a better place for authors, manuscripts, and editors. So come take not one but two plunges with me this fall.
