The Rosanne Ullman Better Writing Group
Strong writing costs less? Yes!
As you become more confident in your writing, you'll spend less time turning out reports, emails and letters. We can show you how to cut your written output by at least one-third and save on:
Then people will actually read what you've writtenbecause it's easier to understand and there's less of it! You'll write more effectively with fewer words. We focus on grammar, plus a few principles of writing that will make all the difference. Our topics include:
|Punctuation (Apostrophes are easy once you get it!)|
|Verb, noun and pronoun agreement|
|Consistency in graphics|
|3 Secrets of Strong Writing (Hint: think about your verbs.)|
We take questions! You probably have at least one question about the English language that you wish someone would answer definitively. We will! Sometimes there is no single answer. A good example is the question of whether to place a comma before the last word in a series; the answer is that you can if you feel like it. As long as you're consistent within a document, it makes little difference. Take a sentence such as:
If you really like commas, you'll still be correct to insert one after the word "inspiration," although most stylebooks omit that comma.
