Upcoming Appearances

Yours truly will be representing the 'umble freelance editor on Saturday, May 28, at the Writers' Union of Canada conference at a panel entitled "A Carnival of
Commas: Dispatches from the Grammar Wars," with Alison Gordon, Russell Smith, and moderator Doug Gibson.

Next weekend, they're shaking the comma dust off me, and we're going to wander the halls with the throngs at BookExpo.

The weekend after, I'll be speaking in defense of some of my favourite hobgoblin-fodder at the Editors' Association of Canada conference, back in Toronto.

After that, I'll be back in the punctuation pits, again, feeding unrefined prose to the processors.

There doesn't seem to be commenting allowed on the previous post, so I'll say this here: an extraneous a has crept into the URL for the fact-checker article; if you try to click on it you get "ahttp is not a recognized protocol." I right-clicked, copied the URL, pasted it, and deleted the a, but you might want to save readers the trouble. (Great piece, by the way -- thanks!)

Thanks! URL fixed and comments enabled. Blogger and I were having issues when I posted that. We seem to have resolved our differences now.
