Is Your Manuscript a Model T or a Tesla? Fine Tune Your Writing for a Smooth Read

with Jami Carpenter

Tuesday November 21, 2023 1:00pm US Central time • 2 hour webinar

One-time Zoom webinar

Perfect for
Writers of any genre

Live attendance is not required: enrollees can watch the recording at any time after the workshop!

Even the most accomplished writers struggle with spelling, grammar, and punctuation, suffer from misuse or abuse of the language, rely on favorite phrases, and wallow in pet words. Jami Carpenter shares common, ghastly, and humorous errors—and offers suggestions to help your story “purr.”

Throughout the workshop, participants will have an opportunity to interact with Jami and other participants as they put the new strategies and skills from the presentation into practice in their own writing.
