Grammar errors, typos, factual blunders, and formatting goofs can put a black eye on even the most brilliant writing. That’s where copyediting and proofreading come in! In this workshop, we’ll go over the basic tools and techniques of the copyediting trade, including:

* Chicago vs. AP style

* Developing a style guide

* Marking manuscripts

* The stages of copy to proof

Helpful online resources and handouts will get you on the path to grammar nerd-dom!

Workshop will be led by Califia Suntree, who has over a decade of experience as an editor and copy editor for companies, magazines, and publishers large and small.
