Default SPaG Workshop


Hello, everyone!

We now have a new forum area for your perusal and your learning experiences!

The all new SPaG Workshop is now open! Come, submit a piece to be torn apart by our SPaG Ninjas (members in the purple robes), who'll teach you the finer points of everything SPaG-related!

What's SPaG? It stands for: "Spelling, Punctuation, and Grammar." So basically the mechanics behind the writing craft.

No, SPaG Ninjas will not comment on the content of the piece, no matter how much you beg, plead, cry, or shove cookies down their throats.

Please, please, please make sure you read the Workshop Rules before you submit a piece, otherwise I'll have to eat it.

So, yes . . . enjoy!

OK, I projected.

Quick question... how do you feel about someone rewriting a piece, using your suggestions and reposting the reworked piece?

We're fine with that. You could probably even plop it right into the same thread, since it'll be the same piece of the project, only reworked.

Thanks - I find it easier to learn using exactly the same piece sometimes.

Hey! Hey, you! Yeah, you!

Has anyone on the forum told you that your project needs SPaG work?

Well, come on into the SPaG Workshop, and have a section of it torn to pieces!

. . . Er . . . um . . . I mean . . .

Come visit our SPaG Workshop area. Have your work "spagged"!

We tear it to pieces very nicely! And we'll teach you about semicolons! Semicolons are beautiful things.

Erm . . . what exactly does that mean, paul7? As of the moment, you only have one post . . . how can you not be happy with the SPAG Workshop?? Makes no sense.

Nick I meant on SPaG Forum. I was able to do that eventually but no use. My story is beyond the permissible word limit. Thanks.

If, as you specified in your thread in the SPaG area, you specify which part of the text you'd like the SPaG Ninjas to look at, there's no problem, nidhinew2014
