grammarWriters need grammar, not so we can be pedantic about semi-colons, but to ensure that what we’re trying to convey to readers has some chance of translating intact from our brains to theirs.

My motto with writing is “Clarity above all”, so I’m mindful of the fact that the way we put words together can either help or hinder our readers when they engage with our stories (or our blogs, Facebook posts, Tweets). Grammar and style are vital elements of writing, yet many creative, talented writers need help in this area.

Because of that, I’m excited to recommend a user-friendly FREE course on Grammar and Style through the University of Queensland (Australia). Here’s some detail:

WRITE101x will introduce you to some marvelous and quirky resources that we have annotated for your guidance, show you video clips of interviews that we conducted with distinguished grammarians, challenge you with quizzes and writing activities that will give you strategies to help you to build skills that will enhance the quality of your writing, and invite you to enter into discussions and assess the work of your peers in an interactive environment.

WRITE101x begins September 22nd   2014 and you can enroll now.

If you want a solid grounding in grammar, or simply want to brush-up your skills, this course might be perfect for you!
