Editing courses for Vancouver editors

Vancouver has a lot of great courses available for editors, ranging from credit programs that start with the basics to professional development seminars that fill in the gaps.

Editors BC

Editors BC offers about seven or eight one-day professional development seminars throughout the spring and fall. See the EAC-BC Professional Development Seminars listings.

Simon Fraser University’s Writing and Publishing Program

SFU offers a certificate in editing, but courses are also open to non-certificate students. Courses are offered outside of regular work hours. See their editing certificate courses here. Editors’ Association of Canada members get 10% off editing certificate courses! Contact SFU before you register to find out how to get the discount.

Douglas College Print Futures Program

Another local option is Douglas College’s Print Futures Program, which offers courses in writing and editing.

Professional Editors Association of Vancouver Island

Vancouver Island’s PEAVI also puts on seminars.

Independent study and distance education

Meeting Professional Editorial Standards

The Editors’ Association of Canada’s Meeting Professional Editorial Standards is a set of editing exercises presented with solutions and discussion.

Ryerson University’s Editing Certificate

If none of the local options work for you, many of Ryerson University’s editing certificate courses are offered as online courses. See these reviews of Ryerson’s editing courses for more information.

Outside Vancouver

And finally, here’s a list maintained by SFU of publishing programs around the world.
