    A jam-packed session with plenty of tips to help clean up your writing to improve your own skills and make life easier for editors and clients. Thanks to Carrie for so generously sharing your wealth of knowledge!

  2. Kellie Willis

    Great, practical advice that was easy to follow and apply. And Carrie also shared a very useful list of resources that I know I will be referring to from now on. Excellent tips. Everything you want from a workshop really. Thank you.

  3. Deborah

    Terrific refresher for word and grammar nerds who love nothing better than parsing a sentence and a great intro to it for any writer who doesn’t even know what that means.

  4. Christine Howes

    A great refresher, interactive, interesting, affirming (always good to know I’m on the right track!) with stuff I did and didn’t know…great way to spend an hour…happy to highly recommend these Mini Masterclasses, this was my second and I’ve gotten plenty out of both!!!
