Workshop:Write in Passive Voice and Be Passed Over by a Publisher
INSTRUCTOR: MM Pollard
''WHEN: April 1st - April 28th"
''WORKSHOP: In Write in Passive Voice and Be Passed Over by a Publisher, you will receive the equivalent of a masterís degree in passive voice, one of the writing errors that spell rejection by agents, editors, and publishers. We will cover what active voice and passive voice mean, how to form the passive voice, including a verb lesson, and how to form the active from the passive. We will cover the reasons not to use passive voice verbs and the few instances where passive voice is the best choice. By the end of this workshop, you will have everything you need to identify and correct passive voice writing in your writing.
ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR: As an English teacher for fifteen years and, currently, as acquisitions editor for Black Velvet Seductions, MM Pollard has had the mission to help writers find and correct ungrammatical grammar, misused usage, problematic punctuation, and poor writing.
MM has helped many writers improve their language and writing skills through her fun workshops. Yes, English grammar can be fun! She has presented workshops on Writers Online Classes, Savvy Authors, Orange County RWA, Maryland RW, and Celtic Hearts RWA, just to name a few. She is sure she can help you, too, master the fundamentals of English.
