About National Proofreading Day
Do typos (typographical errors) make you cringe? Strive for 100% accuracy in all documents and messages on National Proofreading Day.
On March 8th, four days after National Grammar Day, grab a red pen or red pencil to correct misspelled words; misused words; typos; grammatical errors; and missing, overused, and misused punctuation marks.
The holiday was started in 2011 by Judy Beaver. She wanted to honor her late mother Flo, who was notorious for correcting others mistakes.
