Workshop:Effective Writing: Grammar and Punctuation – 11 October 2016

(PGT) Effective Writing: Grammar and Punctuation

  • Tuesday 11th October 2016 @ 09:30 – 12:30

Grammar should be like the background music in a film.  If it’s good you hardly notice it.  If it’s bad, it jars and distracts you, and does not allow you to focus on what’s important.  We write to communicate our ideas, opinions and discoveries.  If the way we write obscures these goals in any way, then we have to rethink our approach.  Some people think grammar is unimportant, being a secondary issue to the main thrust of their writing.   However, if your use, or misuse, ostudents studyingf grammar leads your reader to stumble over your meaning, you have failed.  Grammar is important.

In this workshop, which consists of a series of short presentations, activities and discussion, we will look at the most common problems faced by writers when it comes to grammar and punctuation.
