Need to focus on editing for grammar?

Our revamped editing series includes 4 student-led workshops. Learn from and with your peers!

  • A Run-in with Run-ons - Practice finding and fixing classic sentence errors: run-ons, sentence fragements, and comma splices.
  • Problems with Pronouns - Do your pronouns confuse the reader? Learn to use pronouns correctly for agreement and case.
  • Victory over Verbs - Make sure each verb matches the rest of its sentence and fits the context of the whole paper.
  • The Tiny but Troublesome - Learn to catch errors that make strong papers look sloppy: spelling, apostrophes, and more...

All student-led grammar workshops are 50 minutes long. Check the schedule for dates and times.
