First-rate writers use first-rate grammar, but grammar isn't an easy skill to learn. The task is now much easier thanks to Joyce K. Ellis's Write with Excellence 201.
Ellis, an award-winning author, has spent a lifetime learning to use proper grammar. And she has shared her insights, serving as the grammar columnist for the Christian Communicator magazine, as a writing instructor at conferences, and as a personal mentor for countless writers. Write with Excellence is a lighthearted handbook that gives new life to her columns. It both teaches and inspires, offering the following elements and more:
• three major sections, covering grammar, punctuation, and style
• forty-six chapters on everything from defibrillating verbs to avoiding apostrophe abuse
• quizzes at the end of each chapter to apply knowledge to one's own writing
• lots of humor, actually making grammar fun.
"If you are at the beginning of your writing career,
you are fortunate to hold this book in your hands.
Joyce K. Ellis's brilliant, informative, and accessible book will save you hundreds of hours of learning everything the hard way. If you are well along in your career, this book is guaranteed to teach you things you didn't know before. Either way, I advise you to keep this book on your shelf, right between your dictionary and your thesaurus. It's that good."

I am grateful that Joyce K. Ellis published “Write with Excellence 201.” The timing couldn’t be better for this college student. I use this humor-filled grammar book to guide me through tricky grammar rules and improve my writing. Do I need to “defibrillate my verbs” or learn the proper use of the em-dash? “Write with Excellence 201” is my grammar book of choice.
