It was all systems grammatical for the first in session in our Autumn/Winter seminar series as the inimitable Mr. Fergal Tobin delighted us all with genuinely fun ways to tackle the trickier aspects of grammar and style. Fowler was invoked, as were ‘dangling participles’ and the finer points of pidgin English in a day filled with unexpectedly common confusions. Here is what a couple of our attendees thought:
Victoria Woodside, Proofreader
An enjoyable and very useful course, with a knowledgeable teacher who managed to make a course on grammar much more fun than I thought it would be, while also reminding me of a lot I had forgotten.
Wendy Logue, Mercier Press
