Workshop Description:

Grammar Boot Camp (one day)

Want to flex your grammar (and punctuation and usage) muscles? This intensive seminar will put you through the paces. Focusing on high-level errors—the ones that make it past the eyes of language professionals and into print—this session will help you identify and fix the most puzzling mistakes in grammar, punctuation, and usage. We’ll look at errors from a range of publications, discuss up-to-date approaches to eliminating them, and run through a series of challenging editing exercises. Feel free to bring in any difficult examples you’ve encountered on the job.
