Coming This Fall

Grammar and Punctuation Boot Camp (October 23 - 24, 2019)

Commas, semi-colons, split infinitives, and typos. Atten-hut! Grammatical and punctuation errors call into question your ability and your organization's credibility. Getting it right builds confidence – for you and your reader. 

The first day of the course will delve into common grammar problems and questions including the use of hyphens, dashes, and the controversial Oxford comma. Participants will complete writing exercises individually, then the answers will be discussed as a group. On day two, participants will test their grammar knowledge and see if they can spot any grammatical errors. There will also be a friendly competition to end the day.
