This course is the culmination of previous courses in which students gained knowledge and skills in publishing tasks from the editor's perspective involving manuscript assessment, structural and copy-editing (including onscreen editing), application of house styles, marking up specific types of copy, and proofreading. This course aims to provide an opportunity for the student to synthesise all these elements together by working on a fiction or non-fiction manuscript in order to demonstrate that he or she has acquired the necessary competencies to manage a book through the acquisition, editorial, design, production and marketing phases. Students can use a manuscript of their choice for the project, subject to its approval by the course facilitator.
