Grammar is rhetorical and contextual; what works or what is “right” in one situation may not be appropriate or correct in another. This workshop not only offers a refresher on both common and advanced grammar and punctuation challenges, but also provides workplace writers a more nuanced and complex understanding of language choice and how to effectively communicate in the workplace through those choices. This workshop will benefit any workplace writer who could use a refresher on sentence-level writing and also those interested in the nuances of language use.
In this workshop, participants will learn to:
Identify and resolve common and complex grammar challenges and other sentence-level errors
Properly use all punctuation, including complex use of commas and semicolons
Consider in an informed manner the use of passive vs. active voice, point of view, word choice and other sentence-level decisions
Find and articulate their own most common sentence-level issues and better edit for them
Spot and “fix” errors in all types of documents that cross their desk
