About the Course

We punctuate our writing with full stops, interrogative and exclamatory marks, commas, colons, semi-colons, dashes (m-dashes and short dashes), apostrophes, quotation marks, parentheses, brackets, etc. but rarely are we conscious of why we punctuate our writing in the ways that we do. Indeed, we often insert say commas or breaks into our writing because we, as writers, are pausing in our minds to think about what we are writing, or feeling emphases or non-emphases, pauses and feelings that the readers for whom we write do not necessarily share. This workshop – Write: Punctuation – aims to make participants conscious of why and how they punctuate their writing – to make us non-narcissistic punctuators of texts that we ought to devote to our readerships.
