    Wow! This is fantastic, I really enjoyed reading this post because I am someone who truly needs help with her grammar and punctuation.

    Any chance this course will be online soon?

    Hi Shawnnita
    Thanks for your query. The Grammar and Punctuation course is not yet available online. But if you happen to be in Sydney, we do offer a great face-to-face one-day seminar in Grammar and Punctuation at the Sydney Writers’ Centre in Milsons Point.

    You can find out more here:

    This is awesome Val. And what great PR for them.
    I am (as you know) exactly like you – quite the grammar and spelling nazi. I annoy my team correcting errors all the time. They promise me they love me for it 🙂
    Keep up the great work. I’m a fan.

      The gift is a nice surprise huh? And I am all for pedantic punctuation police. Some people say it’s petty. I think it’s professional. I love it that you have eagle eyes when reviewing copy – sometimes, it can make all the difference.
