For Spring 2019, Jersey City Writers has partnered with the Department of Cultural Affairs at Hudson County Community College to lead a prose and poetry writing residency. JCW will offer a writing bootcamp that is open to HCCC students and staff, as well as local writers.

Writing Tips & Tricks
Polish your words and make your writing shine! At this workshop you'll learn simple strategies for fine-tuning every sentence to produce clear, crisp text—plus pitfalls to avoid and when less can be more.

Adrienne Girard is the copy chief of O, The Oprah Magazine and Airbnb Magazine. She has been copy-editing magazines, newspapers, news websites, and legal publications for 15 years. Unlike many copy editors, she doesn't have strong feelings about the Oxford comma—you do you; just be clear and consistent.

Advanced sign up is strongly encouraged. Programs will be held in the Dineen Hull Gallery Atrium, 71 Sip Ave., 6th Fl., unless otherwise noted. Photo I.D. must be shown when entering the HCCC campus.
