Welcome to 2018 Submissions page.
We get new words regularly and work to post them as soon as practical.
Please note that not all words are posted. Some are pretty far from the basic rules (one letter change, etc.). Some are two words which we post but don't include in the contest. Some are a little obscure – you may have to take out your actual dictionary to figure them out. Some we can't actually figure out but sometimes post anyway.
We've decided it best not to publish any that have a political connotation, since we'd rather not have the website seem partisan in any way and we didn't want to referee. We also are being what some may think is over vigilant in our effort to not post words that might be offensive to our younger readers. (Besides, who wants our pages to start showing up on unfortunate search results.) Finally, we also try not to post words that are based on religious words or concepts or identifications (whether pejorative or not).
NOTE: Regular readers have noticed that we aren't posting as regularly anymore. All the incoming emails are saved and I just post when I can. Thanks for your understanding.
