Registration Closed / Past Event


Do you worry about your grammar? In this session, we will look at the most common grammar errors and help build your confidence in writing and editing your own work. We will also look at the difference between grammar and style, so that you can vary your style, but still follow the rules. Come prepared with any questions or concerns you have about grammar in your writing.
