Product description

From the Publisher

The Pocket Book of Proofreading is just right. It offers so much more for much less. Learn the secrets of successful proofreading and freelancing for publishers, and how to earn extra income from home.

The optional instant file download (PDF) is a professional three-part proofreading and copy-editing course with free extra exercises. Uses BS 5261C:2005 (marks for copy preparation and proof correction).

The Pocket Book of Proofreading offers a comprehensive overview of freelancing for publishers and working as a freelance proofreader.

Note: If this book were simply turned into A4 pages and made into a proofreading and editing course (which in fact it actually was originally), it would make a course that could be sold at the same price as existing proofreading courses on the market. Hence the value of this popular book.

From the Author

The Pocket Book of Proofreading contains 262 pages and is complete as it is. You don't really need anything more. If you are keen to learn more, however, the book tells you how to access a new downloadable proofreading and copy-editing course with FREE extra exercises (approximately 170 A4 pages, making a total of 432 pages!). It's all you need.

Learn Freelancing and its associated website offers a professional and comprehensive proofreading course, and you can learn about copy-editing too.

Many people have been successful as a result of taking this proofreading and editing course, and have found regular work as freelances, working from home full or part time, or are now working in-house for publishing companies.

There is competition naturally, so you need the best possible start. You'll find this with The Pocket Book of Proofreading.
NOTE: the book was proofread and copy-edited by a distinguished advanced member of the Society for Editors and Proofreaders (SfEP), so you can sure of the quality and relevance of this material.
