Calling All Type Os

Here’s a secret: The New Haven Independent is not part of a multinational media conglomerate with a billion-dollar budget that has room to pay for proofreaders. (Actually, trying to get multinational media conglomerates to spend change on proofreaders these days isn’t always easy, anyway.)

So we need your help!

Any time you find a misspelling or other typographical error in a story on our site, please let us know by e-mailing us with the form below.

Ever grateful for the help, we will keep track of how many typos each reader catches. To say thanks, we will periodically award the leading typo-catcher a free New Haven Independent coffee mug. We may not have a budget for proofreaders. But we do have a line item for “thank you” gifts.
