Bet you didn't think anyone could make teaching proper grammar both fun and entertaining? Well, you thought wrong. You haven't met Marcia Riefer Johnston, author of Word Up! How to Write Powerful Sentences and Paragraphs (And Everything You Build from Them)"

I got to meet Marcia in Portland this past summer and she is a delight!
