Why Editor’s Essentials?

Experienced trainer

With nearly 15 years of experience in training, Murugaraj has trained editors of different backgrounds, for different levels of editing for different types of publishers. He helped organizations set up new teams as well as upskilling the existing ones.

Editing-life examples

Our courses include examples from published academic work so that our learners acquaint themselves with academic writing. No more shocking transition from everyday English examples in training to typical academic style of writing during editing.

Deliberate practice

Practice small; achieve big. Make editing your second nature. We employ the time-tested formula of karka kasadara and nirka atharku thaga, which translates to “learn thoroughly, practise well, and apply [edit] with confidence”.

Course certificates

Enrol. Learn. Complete. Earn a certificate. Flaunt it.

Every Editor’s Essentials course comes with a course completion certificate that you earn upon successful completion of the course. A great way to be seen by your potential clients/employers!

Fun & engaging content

Why should learning be serious for adults? Here is an opportunity to learn with an element of fun. Our practice exercises contain activities such as odd one out, fastest fingers and crosswords. Our courses engage you more and help you learn better.

Editing mentorship

If learning the rules and exceptions form one part of the training, the part that complements it is applying them in editing. Our mentorship offers insights into editing beyond the rules and exceptions and prepare you for independent editing.

Thank you so much for a great learning experience. Trainers are friendly, knowledgeable and created a positive learning environment. I enjoyed the right blend of theoretical and practical approach. Open interaction with everyone enriched the learning environment. This course is as good as a face-to-face training on language editing.
