The event, held at the Peter & Julie Cummings Library, located at 2551 SW Matheson Avenue, Palm City, is free and open to the public. 

Are you an author or aspiring author? Do you edit a blog or newsletter? Do you occasionally hesitate over whether to use a comma or semicolon in a sentence? If so, this is the workshop to attend.
