An essential guide for anyone with cause to communicate in written form (most of us), a passing interest in doing it better (some of us), and a disinterest in a book on said subject that is humourlessly preoccupied with rules (almost all of us).

Author Joanne Anderson has expanded on the popular tips she shares weekly with writers at Nine mastheads so that readers everywhere can benefit from her entertaining and incisive observations.

Writely or Wrongly considers:
– Why English needs conventions for clarity but also why some things many of us believe are correct or important ain’t necessarily so
– Cool things punctuation marks do
– Things that mangle sentences
– Uncool things jargon does
– Common pitfalls
– And much more!
