People visit websites with a need, and if a site doesn’t fulfill that need, they’ll click away before you can say “See ya!” Website editors can help keep visitors reading by shaping and formatting copy to hold readers’ attention.

In this session, Copyediting co-owner and publisher Erin Brenner will teach you how to edit websites to keep readers interested while upholding grammar and usage rules.

As a result of attending this session, attendees will be able to identify key characteristics of web writing style and be able to edit a manuscript for those characteristics.

This webinar is geared to students or junior editors with basic experience in the topic area.
