Every Person in New York

Write it Right! is a one-day workshop for the grammatically challenged. After this seven-hour (yup!) class, expect improvement in your punctuation, word usage, sentence structure, and overall attractiveness. The Gotham Writers' Workshop class takes place on Sunday, April 11th at Hunter College. $150

The next edition of the Williamsburg Spelling Bee, hosted by bobbyblue and Jennifer Dziura at Pete's Candy Store, is on Monday, March 29th. Its quarterly offshoot, the New York City Spelling Bee, hits the Housing Works Bookstore Cafe on Friday, May 21st.

We missed National Grammar Day earlier this month but Martha Brockenbrough's blog, The Society for the Promotion of Good Grammar, and her book, Things That Make Us [sic], help us celebrate writing good (kidding) all year.

More online goodness: Schott's Vocab at the Times… Since 1994, Anu Garg has been anatomizing A Word A Day. Over 900,000 people in over 200 countries get the AWAD daily email.

From writers including Elmore Leonard, Zadie Smith, Roddy Doyle, and Joyce Carol Oates, Ten Rules for Writing Fiction. Excellent advice, much of it very funny.
