The GeekERIE's purpose in life is to encourage reading and writing through direct involvement in the Creative Process. We believe that "perfection" takes time and lots of work, but along the way, the work should be fun. We currently offer tutoring services, but more services are on their way. Oh, yeah: we're also a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
If you'd like to help us bring more events and programs to Erie, please consider donating to us through AmazonSmiles!

It’s probably my recent fascination with all things H. P Lovecraft that accounts for today’s word, squamous, which means, more or less, “scaly” when referring to the … –READ ON!
Hey, all! This is just a quick note to let you know that I’ve pre-pressed all of the Automatic Comics comic pages (this means that I’ve sized and formatted them according to the printer’s specs), and will be putting the cover, the indicia, and a few words of introduction by … –READ ON!
A kerfuffle is a commotion caused by a negative inciting event. For me, the word evokes a feeling of triviality – an affair that should never have gotten attention in the first place, so the resulting conflict is comically disproportionate. I can think of no better visual of a kerfuffle … –READ ON!

Yiddish in origin, haimish means “homey”, “comfortable”, “a place I feel I belong” or “this is a person I could have a drink with”. It sort … –READ ON!
I’m going to start off with a warning: this is not a cute debate that you can listen to with your kids as you make Rice Krispie Treats for Halloween next week. Even if you’re making popcorn balls, I suggest you keep your children’s unbesmirched ears clear of this obviously … –READ ON!
