April Michelle’s passion for the industry overflows into the ways she fashions and teaches her classes:

  • Editing 101: The Fundamentals of Copyediting, a comprehensive course designed especially for freelance editors to provide them with the foundation for succeeding in the industry
  • Editing 102, which builds on Editing 101 and can be taken either together or individually
  • Grammar Refresher, a comprehensive review course covering parts of speech, punctuation, spelling, and more
  • Indexing 101: The Fundamentals, a review of the fundamentals and theory of indexing, offering hands-on learning by indexing a portion of a book
  • Macros 101, a fundamental course to teach or expand your macro skills, teaching you how to maximize your time by putting those repetitive tasks in a macro, allowing you to push one button and they all be done

All three courses, inspired and conceived by April Michelle, are available as distance-learning courses.
