Graceful Grammar & Punchy Punctuation: Everyday Writing for Your Organization
In partnership with Maine Association of Nonprofits, this half-day workshop will revisit some fundamental writing skills that will help your written communication stand out as refined and resonant. Through interactive lectures, group discussions, and short in-class projects, you’ll identify the areas of your writing that could benefit from some polishing. Participants will gain practical tips for achieving verb strength and excellence in grammar and punctuation. This workshop does not focus on specific kinds of writing strategies, such as grant writing or marketing content. However, participants will take away memorable, quick ‘n easy tricks for improving all areas of written communication--ensuring consistently clear, effective, professional writing for day-to-day organizational needs: email correspondence, news releases, and internal communication. If it’s been a few years since you took an English class, join us for a fun and interactive workshop that will inspire a dedication to active verbs and renew your appreciation for the semicolon.
