Event Details

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.

Note: Participants will need a computer and Internet access outside of the training to help with their homework assignments. Enrolment includes a personal login to the dedicated course website which provides downloads of handouts and homework assignments, links to online resources, tutor support between classes, and a web-based mini-publication for the online sub-editing project.

 "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."

- Vicky Lane, Associate Editor, easyJet Traveller Magazine

London School of Publishing (LSP)

The London School of Publishing (LSP) has been training delegates since 1984 and has established an excellent reputation for delivering skill-based courses for individuals attending our scheduled courses, as well as the tailor made corporate training courses. We offer a range of training that suits the needs of our delegates, whether it be day or evening training.

Our purpose is to provide delegates with a dynamic and practical training experience, reflecting key trends in publishing, such as e-books, self-publishing and developments in "agile" publishing.

Our recent expansion of courses and competencies reflects a change in direction, taking a broader view of publishing and training, central to which was the recognition that at the heart of all forms of publishing and self-expression was creativity. LSP's mission, therefore, was clear – to stimulate the creative capabilities and ensure courses. 

LSP undertook a strategic review to focus on five areas:

Editing: book editing, sub-editing, copy-editing
Digital: social media, Adobe, e-publishing, writing for the Web
Visual: picture research, infographics, art history
Literature: creative writing, poetry, the novella
Presenting: presenting skills, corporate presentations

 The pace of technological change is altering how we publish and communicate. Whether one is involved in traditional publishing, producing content for social media, writing a feature, a poem or developing an engaging infographic - the critical distinctive ingredient for success is creativity. Creativity remains a key defining capability.

In addition, outside of developments in traditional and digital publishing, LSP also aims to improve peoples' understanding and access to the Fine Arts, music and literature in an attempt to introduce them for the first time to these fascinating areas of creative expression or re-kindle interests.

Located in Notting Hill Gate and Kensington, LSP has an ideal central London location to deliver its courses. LSP courses are CPD approved, facilitating employment and promotion.
