NorCal STC’s 2019 Grammar Games!

Do you have a strong preference between the Chicago Manual of Style and the Microsoft Manual of Style?

Do you cringe when people use there/their/they’re incorrectly?

Do you use proper grammar, spelling, and punctuation in text messages?

Then this event is for you: the inaugural NorCal STC Grammar Games!  

Come to what will surely go down in tech comm history as the greatest battle royale of grammar geeks! Topics competitors will be tested on are: grammar basics; misspelled words; punctuation; common mixups; titles; progressives; pronouns; hyphenation; and etymology.

Think you have the literary chops for the Grammar Games? Then dust off your Elements of Style and get ready to go head-to-head with your fellow writers in this battle of the brains! 

Oh and prizes. Winners will receive prizes!

Register now to reserve your spot!

Extra points to anyone who discovers any typos or grammatical errors in this event description…any errors were surely intentional…

    Reporting typo: Do you mean Monday, March 25? (Or Saturday, March 23?) Looks fun! 🙂
