Today was the first day of subbing. As a class we subbed an article about Monopoly and discovered that the longest anyone has ever played the game is 49 days. Together, we wondered if we would be subbing the article for as long. It felt as if we were.
I am approaching subbing as a way to improve my spelling and grammar. I hope to leave the lessons with two things: a) An increased love and respect for the very skilled art of subbing, and b) Kick-ass, no mistakes copy.

Some of the articles displayed in front of us to correct had actually gone to print. Together with Kaye, as the Canal Business subbing team, we pray that our magazine is word perfect.
p.s. This is a marvellous film.
