Event Details

Learn the core skills required to edit news stories, features, blogs and more to professional journalistic standards.

The five week evening course will train you in the fundamental techniques of editing raw copy text, or even your own writing, into attention-grabbing and highly readable stories, as demanded by content publishers worldwide. It is aimed at a broad range of participants, from self-starter bloggers to experienced journalists who require formalised refresher training.

You will 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 sub-editing approaches required for various types of material, and explains the distinctive subbing methods demanded by print and online media.

Requirements: Participants will need to bring their own laptop or tablet computer, with word processing software such as Word or Pages, to each class and have Internet access throughout the course to help with homework assignments, downloading copies of course material and tutor support between classes.

 "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.
