Speaking Engagements

Let Margaret share her experience as a teacher, writer, and editor with your audience. An enthusiastic and experienced presenter, Margaret can make even a grammar presentation entertaining. (And if you’re not sure anyone can do that, she can provide references.) Margaret has taught thousands of people from all walks of life how to become more sophisticated and successful writers. She can present on many diverse language issues to both small and large groups. Here are a few examples:

♦ the history of the English language (and how this history influences our writing)
♦ specific issues that non-native writers of English can find challenging—and some solutions
♦ the importance of in-house consistency for organizations (in other words, you need a style guide!)
♦ the tyranny of the grammar grump know-it-all
♦ style 101: techniques for making your writing stand out in a sea of bad writing
