When: April 5, 2019, 9 a.m. - noon
Where: Nature Conservancy of Canada, Tom Beck Boardroom, 890 - 105 12 Ave SE, Calgary

About the Workshop

When was impact accepted as a verb? Why are prevent and avoid so often confused? Is it okay to verbify? This half-day workshop examines these and other usage questions and problems affecting today's speech, journalism, and other writing. We'll also cover the top five usage myths, discuss the best resources for clearing up usage questions, and - of course - practise.
