The joy of giving something useful to others
For a quarter of a century (right from my PhD days) I've been giving myself wholeheartedly to learning. While training people wherever I worked, I used to teach the editors wholeheartedly, keeping in mind the learners and their capabilities, with an eye on the amount of information they can take in at a given time. And now while I offer courses in editing to make a living, I want to offer you something more, something extra, that will not only help you in your work but also help you enjoy it.
