Grammar for Grown-Ups: The Punctuation Party

  • The Skillery 1323 6th Ave N Nashville, TN, 37208 United States (map)

This is a series for those of you out there kicking yourselves for not paying a little more attention to your high school English teacher. We get it. It was… well, boring. But now, all these years later, you’re nagged with self-doubt every time you send an email. The Porch is here to help. Come on over for a glass of wine and some shop talk, and we’ll try to get those issues all ironed out. (By the way, we know it’s not really “grammar” we’re talking about, per se. It’s punctuation, but that’s just semantics. We liked the alliteration.)

Event Description:

When used correctly, dashes, parentheses, colons and semi-colons, and quotations can work magic on your prose, creating voice, pace, and sophistication. However, many a writer is uncomfortable wielding these “others.” That’s what this class is about—broadening your punctuation repertoire and having some fun in the process.

When does this class meet? 

On Wednesday, February 25th from 6-7:30pm.
