Making the Point – Punctuating your work for clarity and expressiveness

£65.00

With Jenny Haddon

This course will run in July 2021

Punctuation is a bridge. It gives the reader clues that, face to face, he or she would pick up from a speaker’s tone, body language and facial expression. It is a wonderful gift and can be a delight. Yet it has been off the school curriculum for years.

This course aims to help writers, students and anyone who has difficulties with punctuating their work. By the end, you will know how to apply the principles of punctuation, be alert to common errors to watch out for and recognise when a change in punctuation will improve what you’ve written. Sometimes a full stop is all it takes.

 

Tutor Bio

Jenny Haddon took a degree in English at Oxford and worked for the Bank of England, the IMF and other international financial institutions as a bank regulator, while moonlighting with Mills & Boon. Now a full time writer, she has written 50-ish novels as Sophie Weston and Sophie Page. With RNA member, author Elizabeth Hawksley, she wrote Getting the Point, originally subtitled Punctuation for the Petrified. They decided it was needed after one of Elizabeth’s very best creative writing students confessed that she thought you sprayed commas around the way you put pepper on pizza.
She gives workshops on creative writing, especially romantic fiction, and punctuation. She blogs regularly at https://libertabooks.com
