The 10 week Sub-Editing evening course provides training on the core skills required to become a sub-editor on a national or local newspaper or magazine. It is aimed at a broad range of participants, including those new to publishing, writers looking to expand their professional expertise, and even experienced journalists who require formalised refresher training.
Participants learn how to approach written copy critically and reshape it into compelling editorial content that people will want to read. Focusing on practical exercises and using real-world examples, the course also focuses on the different approaches required for newspaper and magazine sub-editing, and explains the distinctive sub-editing methods demanded by print and online media. Two sessions are devoted to Adobe InDesign training for sub-editing within page layouts.
"Despite having some prior knowledge and experience of the newspaper and magazine industry, I still felt I learnt a significant amount and that Alistair is a brilliant (and very funny!) tutor."
This course runs once a week for ten weeks and is held in the evening from 18:30pm – 20:30pm.
*Please note: A marking fee of £50 is to be paid directly to the tutor at the end of the course, for the marking of the examination.
