How Grammar and Punctuation Errors can Torpedo Your Manuscript.
Based on reading contest entries and critiques from fellow writers, this talk addresses errors that distract judges and editors including formatting, POV clarification, correct comma usage and spelling mistakes that spellcheck doesn’t catch.

Our meetings are held from 10 am-noon on the third Saturday of every month, except December, at the Jefferson Parish Library Eastbank Regional Library, 4747 W. Napoleon Avenue in Metairie, LA.
