Workshop: Greatest ’its
Presented by The Good Copy

Sat 30 Apr 16, 12pm
NGV International
Ground Level

Free entry

We all have problems using punctuation and grammar, or, to be more precise, we all have anxiety about it. Does this sentence make me look stupid? Did I forget to put myself in the right tense this morning? Do I require parenthetical guidance?

Greatest ’its confronts, stares down and frightens into submission that most anxiety-inducing of punctuation marks: the apostrophe. Where does it go? What is it, exactly? Is it it’s, its or its’? And so on.

Top-gun writing and editing duo Penny Modra and Max Olijnyk of The Good Copy have prepared this stirring 30-minute workshop using source material from their Stop. Grammar Time. course. Participants will walk away with, at the very least, a flowchart. And a pencil.
