Celebrate National Grammar Day with NewsU!

11:40 PM Feb. 26, 2013 — by Vicki Krueger

We love language. And we love holidays. So a holiday about grammar gets twice as much of our love. Join NewsU and Poynter.org as we celebrate the joys of word choice, parts of speech and sentence structure all day on Monday, March 4.

Roy Peter Clark, the author of “The Glamour of Grammar,” will keynote the day with his new Webinar, This Ain’t Your Grandma’s Grammar: 4 Concepts to Improve Your Reading and Writing Forever. (We're not sure "keynote" really is a verb, but for this special day, we'll make an exception.) During the Webinar, we'll also be giving away copies of his book to a handful of lucky Webinar participants, so be sure to join us early and stay for the whole event.

Can't attend the Webinar? Roy will also be talking about grammar in a special writing chat at Poynter.org following Monday's Webinar.

But wait! There's more! We’ll also be celebrating on Facebook and Twitter with a special #grammarday contest to win a NewsU prize pack.

Every good holiday has great food. So we're asking your help in creating special National Grammar Day treats. Here are some of the ideas we’ve cooked up so far at NewsU:

  • Comma Splice Cake
  • Grammar Crackers
  • Pineapple Upside-Noun Cake
  • Caret Cake

Post your ideas on our Facebook page or Twitter @NewsU, #grammarday between now and the end of National Grammar Day on Monday. We'll pick winners from among the tweets and posts. (Here are the complete contest rules for the National Grammar Day Food Name contest.)

In “The Glamour of Grammar,” Roy Peter Clark says when we think of grammar in the right way, “it helps us write with power, read with a critical eye, and talk about how meaning is made.” At NewsU, we believe that grammar is important all year long, of course, not just on March 4. So march forth, and check out these great courses. We can't guarantee you'll leap tall buildings in a single bound, but we can guarantee you'll be a super writer.

Cleaning Your Copy (NewsU's most popular course, with more than 40,000 enrolled). Finding and fixing the most common grammar, punctuation and AP style errors.
Clarity is Key: Making Writing Clean and Concise Learn to clarify and streamline your writing by using straightforward words and stronger nouns and verbs.
Get Me Rewrite: The Craft of Revision How to review your work with fresh eyes to fine-tune awkward passages.
The Writer’s Workbench: 50 Tools You Can Use Techniques to refine your storytelling and write with confidence.
Language Primer: The Basics of Grammar, Punctuation and Word Use Practice the fundamentals of grammar and composition so you can write with greater confidence.

And don't forget to join us at 2 p.m. Eastern time on Monday for This Ain’t Your Grandma’s Grammar at a special National Grammar Day rate of $9.95.
