Grammar Boot Camp

with Frances Peck

When: Four Saturdays, April 24, May 1, May 8, and May 15, 10:30 am to 12:00 pm

Where: All sessions are via Zoom

Want to flex your grammar (and punctuation and usage) muscles? This intensive seminar will put you through the paces. Focusing on high-level errors—the ones that make it past editors and proofreaders and into print—this session will help you identify and fix the most puzzling mistakes in grammar, punctuation, and usage. We’ll look at errors from a range of publications, discuss up-to-date approaches to eliminating them, and run through a series of challenging editing exercises. Feel free to bring in any difficult examples you’ve encountered on the job.

Frances Peck, CPE (Hon.), has been working with words for 30 years. She has taught for the University of Ottawa, Douglas College, Simon Fraser University, the University of British Columbia, and dozens of organizations across Canada. She prepared the Canadian edition of The St. Martin’s Workbook, a university grammar exercise book; co-authored the popular HyperGrammar website; and wrote Peck’s English Pointers, a free collection of articles and quizzes available on the Language Portal of Canada. Frances lives in North Vancouver and is an affiliate with West Coast Editorial Associates.
