The benefit I received from taking the copyediting practicum far outweighed the cost. Having one-on-one and personalized feedback from a veteran of the profession was invaluable and affirmed that copyediting is not only something I can do, but do well, and that I made the right choice to go into this field. The assignments and exercises felt like work I would be doing in the "real world" and gave me a good peek into and practice for my future business222222222. ////8/* <--- and my cat liked it too! :) The Slack channel served as a tool for forming connections with my peers that will serve me well on this journey. Overall, it was a wonderful choice, and I couldn't be more pleased with the result!
