We’ve all heard that ‘print is dying’ and ‘it’s all going digital’ and if you’re a freelance editor without access to publishers’ in-house digital training, that might worry you. Or maybe you are in-house but feel you need to develop your basic digital knowledge and skills quickly. We’re here to help. We’ve put together a list of hot topics and we’ll be steadily making video presentations that will talk you through the jargon and the workflow for each area, and explain what that means for you as an editor.
How will it work?
Each topic will be presented in three parts:
Part 1 We’ll tell you what the topic is and give you some background, present and explain the jargon and give you a summary PDF to take away.
Part 2 We’ll talk about how the topic or product is created, including issues, workflow and roles.
Part 3 We’ll tell you what you need to do as an editor on the product, using practical real-world examples and case studies. Video + PDF materials.
