They’re more than books, they’re more than enhanced ebooks, these are self-training courses for editors. Learn the skills that will make work easier, more enjoyable, and improve the bottom line!
I updated the copyediting exercises in this workbook from Editors Canada. With discussion of the problems and possible solutions, rather than dictating one way to edit, this workbook is one of the most valuable tools an editor can use to learn and practice the tasks of editing. It’s divided into discrete types of editing too, following the definitions laid out in Professional Editorial Standards.
To get started before these are published, try the course versions.
This is the “companion” volume to Editing Canadian English, published by Editors Canada (published within 1 volume in most formats). I wrote the chapters on editing educational materials and on software for editing.
The book is available online, as an ebook, and in print. The print version is sold as a stand-alone volume. See Editors Canada for details.
