Spring Cleaning Series

This spring we are offering a few workshops to help you clean house! Throughout the month of March, we will be revisiting grammar, revising old pieces, and preparing to send them off for publication. Although we encourage you to attend all, you are welcome to join us at any step of this process.



1-part workshop March 16 (TH), 6-8 p.m.

Confused by commas? Perplexed by parentheses? Don’t let this hold you back from writing your masterpiece! This workshop will address some of the most common grammar questions and offer strategies for recognizing and understanding the “rules” behind them, as well as answering questions that participants bring forth during the session.

Cost: Free. Registration is required
