Nuts-and-bolts punctuation and grammar classes for writers, readers and people who like to leave the house. Learn to put the things in the right places so you sound as clever as you are, really. Your emails won’t know themselves. Your articles will be sharpened and your novel won’t even need editing.
Some of the topics we cover:
— What is a sentence? Is this a sentence?
— Sticks and dots: punctuation and how to use it
— What is a style guide? Will it tell me what to wear?
— Put your butt in the chair: the secret to good writing
All this, and more! We’ll keep you pepped up on piping-hot coffee and entertain you with crazy grammar- and punctuation-themed clips and songs. On top of that, we’ll throw in a Stop. Grammar Time. tote bag and a commemorative woven patch.
Stop. Grammar Time. is presented by top-gun editor and writer Penny Modra, along with similarly grammar-obsessed members of The Good Copy team.
