About this webinar

We all want our writing to be clear and concise and agonise over getting it just right. Is that the correct word? Have I put the comma in the right place? Should that be an em-dash or an en-dash? Sometimes we just need a tool to help us identify the typos and grammatical inconsistencies or highlight the punctuation errors. This session will demonstrate free tools to improve our writing and help us become better writers.

    What a great presentation. Thanks for the comprehensive summary of the various programs, as well as the handy hints and tips. Hopefully now I can polish up my writing.
    I was stunned to learn that I have been using em-dashes incorrectly for more than 50 years!
