Catch up on Off The Shelf – The Art and Craft of Grammar by Jodie Clark

Do you associate grammar with being ‘grammar shamed’?  Are you hypervigilant about punctuation?  Do you fret about the difference between conjunctions and prepositions?

In this workshop, recorded as part of Off the Shelf 2023, you’ll be encouraged to move away from this ‘red pen’ outlook and toward a view of grammar as a set of art supplies to inspire new directions in your work.  Dr Jodie Clark is Senior Lecturer in English Language at Sheffield Hallam University and author of Revealing Grammar: An Easy-going Guide for Teachers, Writers and Other Creative People
