Grammar and Writing Boot Camp for Development Professionals
Presented by Barbara Kancelbaum
Do you know "that" from "which"? When to hyphenate and insert commas? How to punctuate dates and states? Hone your development and communications grammar and writing skills in this fun, interactive workshop—and present your organization in the best possible light. After counting down the top 10 grammar mistakes that nearly everyone makes, we’ll discuss proofreading and editing one's own work as well as writing engaging emails and other public-facing correspondence.
