You know the difference between they're, there, and their, but what about between allude, elude, and ilude? When should you use single quotation marks? Is it a "much needed" or a "much-needed" addition? Taught by a professional editor, this class will take you through the most common grammar, punctuation, and spelling mistakes writers make. You'll also learn the five grammar "rules" you can ignore, why it's important to follow one style guide and dictionary, and why spell checkers—and even worse, grammar checkers—are not your friends.
