Typo Eradication – fixing public typos, grammar mistakes and spelling mistakes

Do you ever want to fix typos or grammar and punctuation mistakes when you see them on public signs, menus, etc.? Sometimes I can just let them pass me by, but sometimes they grate on me. Well, you’re not alone! (Or at least, I’m not. 🙂 )

A few people founded the Typo Eradication Advancement League (TEAL)–and they’ve spent the last few months finding typos on public signs, and either correcting them themselves or asking the person responsible to correct them. They’ve documented this journey on their blog with photos and text. It’s a fun read, if you like stuff like that. (I do.) They’re now asking for your own stories of public typo correction.

I'm the author of SCARS (WestSide Books, 2010) #1 ALA QuickPicks, and Governor General Literary Award Finalist, HUNTED (WestSide Books, Oct 2011), STAINED (Harcourt, 2013), The Last Dragon (HIP Books, Sept 2009), and Walking Both Sides (HIP Books, 2011).
