A Call For Questions

This month, our events programme covers writing and editing. We'll be getting into the minutiae of sentences and diving deep into the craft of writing. On November 15th, I'll be in conversation with Lynne Truss, author of Eats, Shoots & Leaves: The Zero Tolerance Approach to Punctuation, and the wonderful Drew will be speaking to Benjamin Dreyer, author of Dreyer’s English: An Utterly Correct Guide to Clarity and Style... and we'd like your questions!

Comment on this post with anything you'd like us to put to these fab writers and gurus in craft.

    • I once wrote a style guide (for a legal department) - mostly about using plain English. Has anyone put it better than Orwell in his 6 rules and especially the sixth : 'Break any of these rules sooner than say anything outright barbarous'?

      ps Anna, you might want to look again at 'guru's' if you're talking to Lynne Truss!

      • Commas, those horrible things. What is the proper use from them in writing fiction? It is better to use the comma over the semicolon?
