This hands-on resource covers the range of skills you will need to work as a stylistic editor, whether you are learning the craft or are an established professional wishing to check and broaden your knowledge. If you are a learner, use it on your own or create a study group with other stylistic editors. (And if you are a teacher, you may use it as a basis for a stylistic editing course. Classroom copies are available from Captus Press.)

The exercises and solutions were created and revised by experienced editors from the Editors’ Association of Canada. They recognize that learning to edit is an active process. The problems posed by the exercises and the discussion of options and techniques that form part of the solutions offer insights into the inspiration, patience, humility, and concern with detail that infuse good stylistic editing.
