Some writers have a good intuitive feel for grammatical correctness—or lack thereof. But professional editors need more than intuition; they need to be able to name the mistakes in order to explain their changes and help writers improve. Learn how to identify, name, and eliminate the most common grammatical gaffes, the ones that embarrass the writer and distract the reader. The instructor will also provide some useful print and online resources to help you continue your voyage of grammatical discovery.

The key learning objectives of the webinar are to

  • understand why it’s important to move beyond an intuitive sense of correctness,
  • identify common grammatical mistakes, name them, and correct them, and
  • explore practical and useful print and online resources for continuing to improve one’s grammar.
