The secret to launching a fabulous new career without needing a master’s degree!

For editors in the early stages of their career (under three years) who haven’t yet sat the IPEd exam, as well as people who are considering a career in editing, Your Editing Career Launched is the perfect intensive course. It will take you from where you are now and equip you to jump start your career or advance you to the next level with lightning speed.

The governing principle of Dr Lines’ approach—and all of her work—is ‘fast but perfect’. Not only is Your Editing Career Launched accessible to time-starved workers and students, it offers an intensive, deep learning experience. You start learning from the moment you enrol and continue learning long after the face-to-face component ends.

What’s included?

  • Preliminary testing and feedback so you begin learning from the moment you enrol, and so Dr Lines can tailor the course to your individual learning needs
  • Preparatory work to be undertaken prior to the course to ensure you get the most out of your time with Dr Lines
  • Small course sizes for individual attention (10–12 max)
  • Three days non-stop, high-level learning
  • Three months of VIP support and coaching from Dr Lines with membership in a private Facebook group
  • All course materials and resources

Jam packed and fast paced—but using a teaching methodology that ensures your learning is still in depth and not at all superficial—Your Editing Career Launched will teach you everything you need to know.
