Individual remote training

If you are an author who would like to learn how to do some of the publishing tasks yourself, we could:

• Show you how to format your Microsoft Word file so it will be cleaner upon submission to us and less costly for you during the formatting and copyediting processes

• Instruct you how to use Microsoft Word’s Track Changes editing tool so you can see the history of the changes as we go through the copyediting process

• Teach you how to assign Microsoft Word's paragraphs styles to your manuscript, which will provide valuable information for the interior design and keep your costs down

Set up an interior design template in Microsoft Word so you can see what the interior pages will look like when you enter text and graphics

Teach you how to submit graphics in the required format so they are compatible with the specifications of the selected printing vendor 

After you have done all you can (or want to) do, we will use your amended files and refine them as needed.
