Welcome to Perfect Your Punctation, a non-technical guide to using commas, semicolons, colons, dashes, parentheses, and other types of punctuation with style and flair.
As our world becomes increasingly digital, we must present ourselves increasingly in writing--meaning, our writing often determines whether we get the job, grant, scholarship, or promotion, or not...
If you struggle with writing or worry you're not presenting yourself in the most favorable light via the written word, worry no more! Once you master the major punctuation rules, you'll soon find it easier (and more enjoyable) to write with flair.
As a writer, you need punctuation as a tool of your trade, but many people think there are just way too many rules to learn and that they're too difficult to master. Happily, this is NOT the case!
You need not memorize a grammar book the size of the Bible to write well! Instead, you need only master a few key punctuation rules--and in this course, you'll learn what those rules are and how to use them. We'll cover not only the rules but also examples illustrating those rules so you can immediately see how to apply them.
Think of these punctuations rules as akin to a carpenter's tools in his toolbox. If he needs a hammer, he goes to his toolbox and pulls it out, then uses that hammer with authority. Similarly, once you complete this course, you'll have all the punctuation rules firmly in your "toolbox," and you'll feel comfortable pulling out those tools and using them when needed.
For example, you'll learn to use these punctuation marks, and more: .
Punctuation can be a dry, boring, and uninspiring topic--but not in this class. We'll have a fun, flexible approach to learning punctuation so you can focus on just that--learning--rather than blindly memorizing boring rules. Through this approach, you'll soon discover that punctuation helps you communicate your meaning more clearly and effectively.
Your only regret will be you didn't take this course and master these rules sooner!
