Would you like the skills to find a job that allows you to work your own hours and get paid a competitive salary? If so, then proofreading might be for you. At this time in Chicago, proofreading work is available on a freelance or full-time basis for publications, ad agencies, corporations and a variety of other organizations. Proofreading, simply stated, is the editing of “proofs,” finished sheets of typeset copy. You need to learn a standard system of marks and notations, acquire the sharp eye needed to spot mistakes, and know when and how to consult references such as a dictionary or style book.

This class will give you a complete primer on proofreading. You’ll learn proofreading symbols and gain a sense of how to edit, with plenty of opportunity to practice on a variety of printed material. You will also be given several punctuation and grammar tips. At the end of the course, you’ll learn about job opportunities for proofreaders. Bring a fine-point red pen.

Hallie Belt, M.A. and B.A. in English, has 20 years of experience as a proofreader/editor and taught graduate-level composition at Roosevelt University. Mat Fee: $20 pay to the instructor the day of the class.
