London School of Publishing (LSP)
About the course
The Book Editing course is a highly popular course; which has succeeded in providing an excellent base for the start of a career in publishing. The course is suitable for recent graduates; those changing career direction and those already in publishing and requiring refresher training. The examination-based course is designed for those wishing to work in editorial and proofreading and those who work in books and related publishing. It concentrates on editing and proofreading skills and the techniques required in preparing text for publication. At the same time; the focus is expanded to include information about production; design; rights and other aspects of publishing.
We offer a range of training that suits the needs of our delegates, whether it be day or evening training. Our purpose is to provide delegates with a dynamic and practical training experience, reflecting key trends in publishing, such as e-books, self-publishing and developments in "agile" publishing. LSP undertook a strategic review to focus on five areas: (1) Editing: book editing, sub-editing, copy-editing; (2) Digital: social media, Adobe, e-publishing, writing for the Web; (3) Visual: picture research, infographics, art history; (4) Literature: creative writing, poetry, the novella and (5) Presenting: presenting skills, corporate presentations.
Located in Notting Hill Gate and Kensington, LSP has an ideal central London location to deliver its courses. LSP courses are CPD approved, facilitating employment and promotion.
