Monthly Live Sessions on All Things English


Welcome to a new offering at Margie Holds Court. We're calling it "The SEMINAR." These will be one-hour live sessions with Margie offered once a month. The series will cover a wide variety of topics on all things English.
This is a great opportunity for those needing extra CEUs*, which you can earn by attending the live class. Recordings will be posted of the live sessions, for those wanting to rewatch, or those that can't make it to the live sessions.

We hope you're enjoying all the new additions to Margie Holds Court, and we'll see you online soon!

*Please note: Only those that attend LIVE sessions may earn CEUs.
