A Comprehensive Editing Course in Perth that Focuses on Practical Editing Skills

While many universities may offer editing courses in Perth, those courses often focus on publishing industry theory and creative writing skills rather than practical editing skills. Our course is different. We concentrate on giving you the skills you need to become a professional editor and make money from your work. Our course also gives you the information, advice and support you need to establish your own professional editing and proofreading business to ensure that you will be able to hit the ground running after you graduate.

YECL 2.0 is industry recognised and completely flexible. You work at your own speed at a time that suits you, making it easy to fit around your existing commitments.

You can begin your course at any time, and you can graduate in as little as four months. All the course material is yours to keep, and you’ll receive access to all future updates. We want to give you the best chance to succeed and continue to improve your skills as you gain experience. YECL 2.0 is the only course of its type to offer guaranteed work to graduates who achieve a distinction grade in the final exam.

I would like to thank my editor at Capstone Editing for her thorough edit of my grant proposal. Her suggestions gave me better ways of expressing myself with clarity and (importantly for grant proposals) with fewer words! She provided detailed comments on her edits that helped ensure that we didn’t inadvertently change the intended meaning. I appreciated her attention to the details of formatting and nuances of meaning across the document. I highly recommend her to help improve the readability and clarity of academic documents.

Capstone Editing has edited many journal articles for me. Their editors' thorough command of language really helps in making sure that the article is well expressed and free of errors. They work very quickly and I have found it invaluable to have somebody format an article to the style of the particular journal. It is a massive time saver that allows me to move on to my next piece of work. I plan to use Capstone's services again, including for a book project I have coming up. I highly recommend Capstone Editing to academics wanting to save time and wanting to submit their work with the confidence that it has been thoroughly looked over and formatted to their particular requirements.

The fast, elegant and professional service provided by Capstone Editing saved me hours, days and weeks of work for which I am truly grateful. They worked to very tight deadlines and formatted, fixed and corrected my thesis so that I could submit it on time (and within my budget!) The editors who edited my thesis had phenomenal attention to detail and provided me with tremendously valuable feedback that improved the quality of my thesis. In addition to the usual material, my thesis had dozens of tables in both portrait and landscape format, a research study and case studies. My editors very quickly corrected and fixed all the material I threw at them and went beyond the call of duty to provide me with a beautifully referenced and immaculately formatted thesis. I am so appreciative of their advice and assistance.
