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.
