In our Video series, Comma Talk, we’re going to uncover the secret of the comma.

 

Commas ensure our sentences are clear and that we’re breathing in all the right places. If you’re one of those people who puts commas in where it “feels right”, that’s actually good; it means you’re paying attention to your breath.

 

The problem is when we don’t know the rules, we breathe all over the place!

 

Some people overcompensate- they use too many, and then their reader hyperventilates. Others use too few, and their readers die from lack of oxygen. That’s right, if you don’t use commas properly, you can kill people.

 

In this series of life-saving videos, we will learn the 12 rules of the comma, when to break those rules for artistic or dramatic effect, and how to avoid embarrassing mistakes like “throw another yule log on Uncle John.”

 

(Poor Uncle John).

 

Accompanying the videos will be readings and practice exercises to turn you into a proper grammar nerd, so not only will you know how to use commas, you’ll know the names for their use, which is guaranteed to make you popular at cocktail parties!

 

Stay tuned!

Batten down your punctuation: it’s a competitive world out there, and believe it or not, a single comma misstep could make or break a job, a publication, or affect the course of your entire life (at the risk of sounding slightly dramatic).

Come and learn, practice, and get an intimate knowledge of this tiny and very important punctuation mark with the One Lit Place Comma Video Series.

 

 

Accompanying the videos will be readings and practice exercises to turn you into a proper grammar nerd, so not only will you know how to use commas, you’ll know the names for their use, which is guaranteed to make you popular at cocktail parties!

 

Stay tuned!
