One thought on “Save the Date: Grammar Boot Camp with Frances Peck

  1. I did leave a comment about a week or two ago, and haven’t heard anything. I wanted to sign up to receive blog updates about the Calgary twig. The prompts to register ask about my website, and I don’t have one. Can I not just register to receive notifications? I’m finding it very frustrating that I can’t seem to make contact with anyone within the Calgary twig.
