Thread: Becoming a better Grammar Nazi

  1. #1

    Default Becoming a better Grammar Nazi

    Greetings

    Which are the better institutions through which to learn proof-reading by correspondence in South Africa? Seeing as I am asked to check documents from time to time, I think that if I am to sign up to learn something this year, proof reading is something I know I shall use at work.

    Have any of you heard of the SA Writers College?

    That sounds like a good idea. I'd be finding out whether it is something I can cope with without having to pay for the privelege.
