Grammar II: Grammar and Editing for Style and Clarity

Learn more about English grammar, identifying unclear constructions, and self-editing.


In this workshop, we'll review principles for writing grammatically correct and stylistically clear phrases, clauses, and sentences. We'll discuss common problems like misplaced modifiers, faulty parallelism, comma splices, and sentence fragments. We'll also emphasize building a "self-editing" checklist which participants will develop by applying workshop principles to a piece of their own writing. A solid grasp of English grammar or Grammar I is recommended before attending this workshop.

Note: This workshop and Grammar I are not an introduction to English grammar and will not provide in–depth explanations of all the parts of speech or rules of usage.

Intended Audience

This workshop is designed for anyone wishing to learn more about English grammar.
