If you happened to miss last week’s announcement of our giveaway of Jag Bhalla’s new book, you have extra time -we have extended the contest time to September 30!
Send us an e-mail, subject line “My favorite idiom,” and include your name and full mailing address. We won’t accept anything after 8:00 pm EST on Friday, September 30, so don’t do the leek (“hang around waiting”)… That’s a French idiom.
Hello! I’m Emily Gordon, an editor, critic, copywriter, and pre-web internet nut. Emdashes, born in 2004, spent many years as a New Yorker fan blog. The project garnered some nice compliments and press.
The blog’s now treading the territories of punctuation, publications, movies, design, and other things that stir me.
Over the years, I’ve worked with a brilliant brigade of culture writers, editors, and artists. You can read all about the people who've helped build Emdashes here at “Who We?” (That’s a New Yorker joke. Old habits die hard.)
I welcome submissions, questions, corrections, and ardent, obsessive contributors. I also host occasional book-related contests and giveaways. Questioners and publishers, just email me.
Jennifer Hadley designed the original Emdashes pencil logo, based on a 1943 Dorothy Gray ad.
