Grammar can be a daunting subject, full of obscure and baffling rules and riddled with pitfalls for the unwary linguist. But believe it or not, this engaging evening class will actually make improving your technical abilities fun.
This large-scale symposium mixes talks, entertaining exercises and even musical interludes, to help you improve the clarity of your writing. Tutor David Marsh is the editor of the Guardian Style Guide – the grammar bible for Guardian journalists – with the world-class expertise to help anyone overcome common problems with syntax and semantics. Whether you're a novice or a full-blown pedant, this informal but informative evening will teach you the rules you need to remember, and the ones you can safely forget, leaving you feeling more confident to write freely and share your work with the world.
Although the tone of the evening is light-hearted, this course aims to explore many important rules and aspects of English grammar. Questions are welcome at all stages to ensure attendees fully understand each subject. Topics covered include:
David Marsh has been a journalist for nearly 40 years and is production editor of the Guardian, which he joined in 1996.

He also currently runs a masterclass in subediting for students on the MA Print Journalism course at Sheffield University, where he is an external examiner.
