    The Writing Consultants

Does editing your work or the work of others trouble you? Do some of your phrases or sentences “sound” wrong—or seem right—but you don't know why? Join grammar expert Jane Griesdorf of The Writing Consultants for a dynamic course designed to take you to the next stage of grammar and punctuation understanding. After a brief review of grammar fundamentals, this program delves into the finer points, an opportunity for you to learn the answers to the “sticky” points of grammar and punctuation that are rarely explained. The many exercises help reinforce your new knowledge. “Jane Griesdorf gives us insights into the fun of grammar and a renewed appreciation for the English language,” writes one attendee. “I only wish she had been my high school English teacher so I wouldn't be having so many problems now!"

  • ​Identify the eight parts of speech and learn why it helps to know them
  • Recognize "danglers" and other ambiguities (especially important for paralegals)
  • Master the latest punctuation rules and use them with aplomb
  • Learn how to write with flair and rhetorical flourish
