Words you can read, and words you can say
superlinguo: This post is inspired by a Twitter conversation earlier in the week. Twitter buddy Leena (@grassisleena) got the ball rolling by asking: Is there a word for where you mispronounce words because you’ve never heard them spoken, only seen them written down? We’ve never heard a specific word for this, but it’s a problem common to well read geeky types. Kane Citizen...

There are a handful of tickets still available for $20 at the door, so if you’re up for a wintry Tuesday movie night, head on in at...
fringecuts asked: Hi Visible Ink! Just to clarify, when it says submissions are limited to 3 entries per person, does that mean, for example, three pieces not exceeding the 2500 words limit in total, for $6? Or each submission is $6, so 3 entries will be $18? Sorry, little confused!
Tuesday morning goody bag: over at the visible ink blog, Cory’s curated another tour of online writing & design resources!

God bless the internet and people who know how to use it to do things.
