Forget 'dress for success,' now it's 'write for success.'

Sponsored by The Office Pro, National Proofreading Day kicks off March 8 to promote error-free writing and communication to enhance a professional and personal image.
National Proofreading Day kicks off March 8 to promote error-free writing and communication to enhance a professional and personal image. The national events include a daily countdown with 30 Proofreading Tips in 30 Days on Twitter. The National Proofreading Day Facebook page promotes accuracy in communication while allowing the community to share funny typos, tell a favorite proofreading story, and connect with people who have Red Pen Syndrome.
What’s a professional image in written messages? No typos and proper grammar. Because people have just one chance to make a first impression, commit to enhancing professionalism through error-free messages. Celebrate National Proofreading Day by re-reading messages to correct all mistakes before sending.
Errors are everywhere—in newspapers, books, e-mails, PowerPoint presentations. Judy Beaver, the founder of National Proofreading Day, agrees with Grammar Girl (A.K.A. Mignon Fogarty): “Forget ‘dress for success,’ now it’s ‘write for success.’”
Beaver’s mom, Flo, loved to correct people, especially for their language errors. So, Flo’s birthday, March 8, is the day to encourage people to correct their writing. Make a professional first impression.
