With Stephanie Mojica.

The art and science of proofreading is more than just running spell check, catching typos, and fixing grammar and punctuation errors. A proofreader’s main responsibility is to ensure the written work reviewed is 100 percent correct; this includes looking for consistency in style, fact checking, and at times checking against a style guide. We will discuss editing vs. proofreading, the necessary skills to succeed as a proofreader, essential style manuals, important computer programs, and other helpful resources. [ALL LEVELS]
