Word of the week: Polemical

Polemical (adjective)
[po-LEM-ickle]

 

“This means controversial, especially when it’s associated with a particular doctrine. And a polemic is a noun that means a controversial argument. So you might say that a chef who writes a blog post about how everyone should be on a Paleo diet has written a polemic. And he could be described a polemical. (Maybe even a Paleo-polemical!)”

 

And to hear Valerie and Allison chat more about this and more on the world of writing, blogging and publishing, check out this week‘s podcast episode.
