Writing is an art, just like painting. Good grammar is the paint. It helps add clarity, shape, and dimension to our creations. But just like the blank page, it can seem intimidating. In this 90 minute workshop, we took a look at common grammar mistakes and how to fix them. Michele Thomas taught us tips and tricks to improve our writing and answered our questions!
