Do you get confused when you should use "that" or "which"? When to hyphenate or insert commas? When to use “i.e.” and “e.g.”?

Grammar guru Barbara Kancelbaum will show you through this hands-on workshop how to tackle some of the trickiest wording and writing issues in the workplace. Take this opportunity to hone your grammar and writing skills in this fun, interactive workshop—and present your organization in the best possible light. After addressing the top 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.

Whether you need to freshen up your donor correspondence or prepare your next e-newsletter, don't miss this special opportunity to boost your development.

We encourage you to submit your questions and most challenging grammar dilemmas in advance so that we can address it the day of the event. Please submit your questions here.
