Go beyond your grammar checker to spot and correct pesky syntax, grammar, punctuation, and style difficulties. Learn important tips to help both you and those with whom you work edit with aplomb! As an attendee has said, "Jane Griesdorf gives us insights into the fun of grammar and a renewed appreciation for the English language."
