We’d like to introduce you to our latest course, Grammar for Writers! Grammar for Writers is designed to help homeschool students and writers analyze their own writing, diagnose problems, and write better sentences. The series is taught by Jonathan Rogers.
Who is Jonathan Rogers?
Jonathan Rogers is the author of The Terrible Speed of Mercy, one of the finest biographies of Flannery O’Connor we’ve ever read. His other books include the Wilderking Trilogy (The Bark of the Bog Owl, The Secret of the Swamp King, and The Way of the Wilderking) as well as The World According to Narnia and a biography of Saint Patrick. He has spent most of his adult life in Nashville, Tennessee, where he and his wife Lou Alice are raising a houseful of robustious children.
What is Grammar for Writers?
Grammar for Writers is a video-based, self-paced course designed to help learners feel less fear about getting grammar wrong, and more freedom in the flexibility that English affords.
This course is a deep dive into English grammar—but not grammar for its own sake. The goal is to give learners a mastery of grammar that results directly and immediately in better writing.
Grammar for Writers builds on a native speaker and reader’s instinctive understanding of language in order to demystify English grammar and sentence structure. The course provides very concrete tools to analyze, diagnose, and repair writing problems.
