National Grammar Day (March 4)

Celebrate your ability to speak and write well. “It’s not only a date; it’s an imperative!”

National Grammar Day, founded by Martha Brockenbrough (SPOGG), is brought to you by Grammar Girl, one of several ‘tip-masters’ hosted by the “Quick and Dirty Tips” site—and one actual Mignon Fogarty, technical writer and author of several books on grammar usage and effective writing. The site supplies a revolving series of tips, (accessible via text or audio), from general usage concerns to those of punctuation, word choice, and style.

The site also has some fun interactive content—quirky videos, polls, and examples of amusing typos, etc.

Once you have gleaned some useful content from the Grammar Girl site, be sure to also consult with your local experts at the UW-Madison Writing Center.
