Bad punctuation diminishes your credibility and prevents the smooth flow of ideas. Even worse, your message can be misinterpreted or unintelligible. Proper punctuation, however, effectively guides readers through your message, never getting in the way, while leading them to your conclusion. This isn’t your grandfather’s boring punctuation lecture. It’s an engaging tour through the effective use of punctuation and the stylistic conventions for using punctuation to advance your argument.


•    Determine what is proper punctuation
•    Analyze how using proper punctuation can increase the effectiveness of your writing
•    Identify how to say what you mean, and mean what you say, using proper punctuation to get your meaning across
