“For me, this class has supported my already-established “philosophy of editing” and helped me build my knowledge base. I have always believed that an editor’s job is to enhance and improve the author’s words without commandeering the manuscript. This class (and the Editing certificate as a whole) reinforced that belief, and has giving me some additional tools in my arsenal so that I can better serve the author. I now know how to explain why an error is wrong, not just that it “sounds weird.”
