Grammar Boot Camp

Monday, April 27, 2015, 9:00 am – 4:00 pm
Western Development Museum, Saskatoon

Want to flex your grammar (and punctuation and usage) muscles? This intensive seminar will put you through the paces. Focusingon high-level errors—the ones that make it past editors and proofreaders 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-todate 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.
