Maintain Your Credibility by Avoiding Language Misuse
From politicians to sportscasters to company CEOs – people who should know better are mistreating the English language. Writers can avoid common blunders by listening to editor Roger S. Peterson. A long-time business writer, writing coach, and West Coast editor of The Business Book Ghostwriters, Roger will make us laugh, squirm, and roll our eyes at egregious errors made by prominent people while he reminds us of pesky language traps to avoid.
Roger’s list of article credits spans more than 150 titles, including four cover stories and four guest editorials in The Sacramento Bee. He writes extensively on business communication. Roger is also a frequent manuscript reviewer for Berrett-Koehler Publishers and edits book reviews for the Wild West History Association.
Co-author of numerous books, Roger has served as developmental editor on four volumes. He got his start in college textbook publishing where he published 45 books in psychology and education. Now The New York Times and The Harvard Business Review come to Roger for opinions, as has the NBC Nightly News.
The California Writers Club–Sacramento Branch Networking Meeting is held the first Friday of every month at Coco’s Restaurant, 7887 Madison Avenue, Citrus Heights, at the corner of Madison and Sunrise, starting at 9 a.m. Meetings are free. Attendees pay for their own breakfast.
