View Full Version : Wanted - A member of the grammar police!

01-27-2008, 02:32 PM
Hi, I'm looking for somebody who will go over a non-fiction 800 word story that I would like to submit to a UK literary mag.

It's in the throes of final draft stage, but I need to get that punctuation and grammar sorted in my head before I put the final touches to it.

Any help gratefully accepted!

I'll be happy to take a look. I have no credentials, but I've always had a knack for grammar - I have been Grammar Girl since high school, and a founding member of the Grammar Squad. Not exactly the same as as degree in English or anything, but if no one else steps up, I'm here, OK?

Thanks to both of you for the kind offer, but Alanna went over it last night (I'm in the UK) for me and now my commas are in the right place;)

I usually get to the point where I can't finish something because my brain starts worrying about punctuation and stuff - still, I'm getting better all the time. I am, honest!
