Presenter: Margaret Chandler
Date:Monday, May 2,

If you work with words, you work with verbs. Good writers and editors
use verbs skillfully to achieve precision, concision, and vitality. In
this webinar, we’ll first explore some of the special qualities of
this fascinating and complex part of speech and then examine how we
can apply this understanding to style editing. Deepening your
understanding of the verb will help you be a more efficient copy
editor and a more eloquent style editor.
As a result of attending this session, attendees will be able to
apply what they learn about the key qualities of the verb both to
their own writing and to their editing. Attendees will also leave with
an appreciation of the power of the verb to shape language.
This webinar is geared towards editorial and communication
professionals who have basic experience in the topic area.
