I am a budding writer with a particular passion for spelling, grammar and punctuation. I thought this course would expand my skills and open some doors into the professional proofreading and editing space.
Michelle was extremely knowledgeable, providing a lot of very practical advice. The workshopped examples and interactions with Michelle and other course participants helped to make a very dry topic more enjoyable.
It’s given me confidence to explore freelancing in the proofreading and editing space.
Friends and family often ask me to proofread and edit material they have written. The course served as a refresher to what I already knew.
The course was interactive and it wasn't a matter of just sitting and listening to someone speak about the content. Michelle knows her subject very well and was able to impart that knowledge so that it was easily understood.
The information was very good and clarified some misconceptions I have had for years. I also learned new things I was not even aware I did not know and started applying my new learnings straight away.
The tutor knew what she was talking about and was very helpful and knowledgeable. It was also great to get her personal experience around tools I have started to use e.g. Grammarly.
I enjoyed learning new things that I can apply in the workplace. Learning from other people's examples and learning from having the tutor work with me to edit some of my own previous work was very illuminating.
Thank you AWC for providing another high-quality course.
The tutor was an excellent communicator, sustained my interest, responsive and sensitive to the disparate skills of participants. Michelle was able to deconstruct the many complexities of editing and although there was such a lot of content I came away with several matters very clearly stamped in my brain.
So many areas that I was uncertain about or did not even know about; quotations, colons and semi colons, dangling modifiers, and more - the rules as explained by Michelle opened so many doors for me.
I love the tip about editing a rule at a time rather than trying to do everything at once (which is my practice). That was so illuminating for me.
The content is great. They give you a really valuable resource workbook, the tutor is an expert in her field and the price point is economical. This will be an excellent investment.
