The Comma Queen Answers Your Punctuation Questions

I often get questions about punctuation usage from friends and clients. I enjoy explaining the rules and helping people understand why a semi-colon must be used in place of a comma, or why a hyphen is not appropriate between parts of a sentence, because it helps to reinforce the rules for me too.

The folks at the New Yorker recorded some very helpful videos on punctuation with great examples from copy editor, Mary Norris — or as you may refer to her, the Comma Queen.

Enjoy the videos and if you have any questions about punctuation, grammar, spelling or writing fill out the contact form below and I will get back to you!
