Newspaper typos

September 27, 2009

Yet again, my newspaper reading is spoilt by a misspelt word. Today’s clanger is ‘ambassdor’, obviously missing an ‘a’, at the bottom of page 8 of Sunday Life magazine, Sunday Age, Melbourne.

A lifetime of reading, studies in professional writing and editing, and employment in a printing shop make me aware, and annoyed by, errors.


PWE progress

September 27, 2009

There’s only one term of study until I achieve my Certificate IV in Professional Writing and Editing at Holmesglen TAFE.

This Semester I am enrolled in three subjects: Instructional Writing, Editing 2, and Popular Fiction.

I.W. and Edit 2 are second-level subjects, and I will only need two more subjects to complete my PWE Diploma.
