Workshop taught by Jordana Lobo-Pires

This synchronous workshop will be offered online and will not be recorded. Please register to recieve the link to join at the scheduled time.

The accurate use of punctuation can make the difference between a confusing sentence and an elegant, clear one. This workshop will review the trickiest punctuation marks used in academic writing: commas, hyphens, dashes, colons, ellipses, and semi-colons. We will go over common punctuation errors and ways to correct them, as well as look at those murky areas where there may be multiple ways to use punctuation correctly for clarity and effect.

This is the third of 4 workshops in the Academic Writing and Speaking in English workshop series.
