Class – Colons & Semicolons: Wielding the Lesser-Known Tools of Punctuation

Next class date is Sunday, September 18, 2022, 4-6 PM Pacific time.

In the words of my writing group, grammar is hard! With all the different grammatical styles and forms of punctuation, it can be difficult to know when to use those things that don’t get used often. We will be going over examples, outlining the basic rules of using them to elevate your writing, and letting you test out these new tools with in-class exercises. You’ll come away with a deepened appreciation for the nuances of grammar and a newly honed ability to sharpen your sentences and make them do exactly what you want.

Join Sarah Buhrman for a workshop in which she teaches you how to fine-tune sentences with punctuation.

Classes are taught online and require reliable Internet connection, although in the past participants have logged on from coffee shops, cafes, and even an airplane; a webcam is suggested but not required. They are recorded for the benefit of class members only.

Cost is $99 ($79 for former students, which includes classes/workshops with me in other venues, such as conference or convention workshops and mentoring sessions). Patreon supporters receive a discount or free classes, depending on their support level.

You will be invoiced when the class slot is reserved.

Free scholarships: If you cannot afford a class but really want to take one, apply for a Plunkett Scholarship. Each class has three slots reserved for such students, and the sole criteria is only that you can’t currently afford the class. To apply for a Plunkett, which covers the entire cost,mail me and tell me why you want to take the class in 100 words or less. QUILTBAG and PoC candidates are especially encouraged to apply. The Plunkett Scholarships are named for Edward Plunkett, who wrote as Lord Dunsany. Scholarships are given out on a rolling basis; I suggest getting them in sooner rather than later. You may apply for multiple classes.
