Coworking member's book launch
Join us at The Stable to celebrate the launch of The Pointless Rules of English with one of the authors, M. Amelia Eikli (a member at our coworking space). Have some tea, coffee and cake and meet fellow grammar enthusiasts from 12pm to 3pm. Follow the ticket link on Facebook and tick Going (and do share the event!) so we know how many people to expect.
Amelia says, "The English language is a bit ridiculous. It’s unreasonably complex, half of its rules are completely arbitrary, and most of us don’t really know why we use it the way we do. But if you want to get an A on that essay, publish a killer novel or make people think you’re funny on the internet, it’s important to know how English works – if only so you can break it apart and use it as you please.
"The Pointless Rules of English and How to Follow Them is your handbook to taking control of your writing. From magic Es to perfect progressive tenses, from essay structure to inclusive writing – we’ve got you covered."
Answering the big questions:
- What’s the deal with ‘whom’?
- How do I use ‘they’ as a singular pronoun?
- Can I have five question marks in a row in this tweet?????
- And what is a word, anyway?
See you at The Stable soon. If you have any questions about this event, its authors or the book, please post them to the Facebook event page directly as The Stable is purely the vessel out of which this book's brilliance will pour!
