Exquisite Fifty

by Kim Baker

Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life? - Mary Oliver

Fifty. Fifty states. Fifty-fifty. Fifty Gates of Wisdom.

Well, with all due respect to the Kaballah and the good ole U.S.A., the best thing about the number 50? The age I started writing poetry.

And six years later, my first book of poetry is being published by Finishing Line Press, a small, award-winning publisher in Kentucky, released in March 2013. Yay!

Writing poetry is one thing. Artistic. Life-giving. Magical. But trying to publish poetry? Not for the faint of heart.

The Write Way: A Plethora of HomosHomonyms vs. Homophones vs. Homographs

by Katie O'Sullivan

I still have vivid memories from elementary school, where they tried to make learning the intricacies of the English language a "fun" experience.

There were usually crayons involved. And sometimes math. Like when you draw pictures of "butter" on the left and "fly" on the right with a big plus sign in between them? What does it equal?

Butterfly! Ah, the beauty of compound words. Or, the beauty of a stick of butter that suddenly sprouts colorful wings, depending on the student's sense of humor.



A reader wrote to ask, "How does one know when to use into or in to?"
