If you have grammar or writing questions, or just want to voice your opinion on grammatical pet peeves, then join Grammarphobia: Easy Tips for Better Writing Workshop at the SLCC Community Writing Center. If you're feeling more creative, or if you participated in NaNoWriMo last year, you can explore the next steps to finishing that smoldering novel of yours. It's time to revise and publish with NaNoWriMo 2: Novel Writing Next Steps. Grammarphobia, 210 E. 400 South (Library Square Plaza), 801-957-2192, March 1, 6-8 p.m, $10; Saturdays, March 5, 12, 19 & 26, 1-3 p.m., $40,
