CDJN 119 Magazine Copy Editing


Certificate Credit
Communication & Design Program Area


Duration: 39 Hours
Fee: $736.18* (Payment in full is required at time of enrolment.)


This course is an introduction to the skills and knowledge required to ensure a high degree of clarity, consistency, and accuracy, as well as precise and appropriate use of language, in magazine editorial copy - print or web-based. After a magazine article has been edited, the copy editor attends to the finer details - checking grammar, punctuation, spelling, consistency of style, logic, and usage - and shepherds the article through the proofreading and production process. These "polishing" skills will be covered in this course, along with commonly used reference works, Canadian spelling, proofreader's marks, copy editing on computers, copy fitting, line editing, bias-free language, working with designed pages, and writing display copy. One lesson will be devoted to fact-checking. While students from many backgrounds may benefit from this course, successful copy editors need an above-average command of the language they're working in, and a wide-ranging general knowledge.
