Instead of a MOOCy Monday update on my grammar course (been slacking), I’ll do a Thieving Tuesday and retweet this excellent post from Kristen Twardowski. I can add my praises to the OWL site, it’s an excellent resource. I’m certainly going to check out the other links.
Like any good grammar junkie, I keep a list of resources for when questions arise about the English language. The following are some free sites that I find myself referring to time and time again. They have been so helpful over the years that it would feel stingy not to share them.
Purdue University has a wonderful set of online materials aimed at helping people improve their writing. Though some parts of the lab are dedicated specifically to Purdue students, many of them are more broadly applicable. The sections on grammar and the writing process are particularly good.
Amherst College has also curated a lovely set of writing resources. Its collection features an aggregation of essays from wonderful places. One of my favorite pages discusses obstacles to writing, which has great features on anxiety and procrastination.
