Editing

Course Details

Students learn the roles and skills of editors in print and online publications: selecting stories, shaping content, enforcing standards and promoting good writing. Classes use examples from the day’s news to develop stories, editing them for clarity, tone, fairness and space. Students take the perspective of editors who must understand the big picture – the look, contribution and impact of their publications – while sweating the details of layout and copyediting.
