Introduction to Magazine Editing

April 6 May 17

Determine how you can work with writers and craft articles that touch the lives of readers. During this six-week course, Jeremy Weber, director of CT Global, and Esther Nyaga, publishing manager of Publishing Institute of Africa, will discuss the many facets of the job of magazine editor, developing your magazine’s profile, working with writers, writing effective callouts, titles, and side bars, and solving common manuscript problems.

Digital technology has changed the face of magazine publishing, but editing and presenting relevant content to your audience is still the cornerstone of an excellent magazine. Discover the time-tested principles of magazine editing and hear some of the secrets experienced editors use to work more efficiently and effectively.

This course is the second in an online series in which you will gain an overview of magazine publishing, including a basic understanding of the elements of magazine business, editing, and design. The series will include an online course in each of these three main areas. You may choose to take one, two, or all three of the segments.

Those who complete each course will receive a certificate of completion for that course, but those who complete all three will receive a certificate of completion for the entire series.

Course topics include:

  • The magazine profile
  • Manuscript editing
  • Writing leads and conclusions
  • Presenting the material
  • Editorial planning
  • Developing writers
