About SBMEN Courses

SBMEN courses follow an editorial curriculum that is designed to increase an editor’s knowledge and proficiency. The courses cover subjects in language, aspects of editing, and the interface between writing and publishing, and more that are based on global publishing practices. It also covers subjects on business practice for freelance editors to improve their businesses. At the end of the training, participants will learn, improve their skills, network with other editors and enjoy opportunities from our job listings.

Industry professionals from publishing and other areas of media will facilitate the workshops and monitor participants’ performance, especially the beginners, as it usually takes around 18 months to 2 years of practice before competence is achieved. Workshop fees for each course covers training, course materials and refreshments. These fees are non-refundable, except in exceptional circumstances.
