I would like to really thank my tutor for all her feedback which improved my proofreading skills. You will see the results in our 2011 catalogue." Premo Jackniacki, Australia - Editing 1 course. Very few people can immediately write a lucid and well-expressed piece of work. In most cases, the final draft is smoothed and polished so that others can readily understand the writer’s message.
