The secret to advancing your fabulous career now

Your Editing Career Launched is the perfect course for editors at any stage of their career, including established editors, people in the early stages of their career and even people who are considering a career in editing. It will take you from where you are now and equip you to advance your career to the next level with lightning speed, whether that means establishing yourself in the field or honing your skills.

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.

Free live webinar!

Register here to attend Dr Lines' most popular webinar, 'How to Launch Your Lucrative Editing Career'.

This webinar is being held LIVE on three occasions only during Semester 2 this year. Attending live will allow you to participate fully; you’ll gain much more from the experience this way than from simply watching a replay!

You’ll learn the three most important things you need to know to build an amazing freelance editing career. These crucial points are often forgotten or neglected even by experienced editors.

The webinar also includes an in-depth Q&A component at the end, during which Dr Lines will answer all your questions about Your Editing Career Launched.

Don't miss out! Places are limited because Dr Lines doesn't like to end the webinar until everyone's questions are answered!
