Program overview

This interactive program  provides a foundation for writing clear and meaningful documents. Explore parts  of sentences (nouns, verbs, adjectives, pronouns and adverbs) and review  standard grammar, punctuation and spelling rules to build skills and confidence  in writing. Use active and passive voice, and learn to avoid common grammar and  punctuation errors.

Participants should bring two current samples of writing  when they attend. These may be emails, briefs, reports, or other writing from  the workplace. Writing practice can be applied directly to their own work. All  writing remains confidential and will not be shared or discussed.
