Snapshot Storyteller | "5 Instagram Accounts for Logophiles" | www.snapshotstoryteller.com #amwriting #snapshotstoryteller #creativestoryteller #creative #storyteller #creativewriter #IWrite #WriteOnMy love of words began with spelling tests as a kid. The list of words would be given out on Monday. I loved learning how to spell the words that were now part of my lexicon. As an adult, I still enjoy learning new words. Thanks to Instagram, I have found new ways to expand my lexicon & I’m sharing them below. Enjoy!

@northern.lightz

If you like to learn words that make you feel things, @northern.lightz is a definite follow. The account features really pretty words like coruscate, jamais vu, and kalon.

@dictionarycom

One of my favorite things I like about @dictionarycom is in addition to sharing new words, they also share fun facts. Do you know what a purlicue is?

@merriamwebster

@merriamwebster has been a part of my life since I was a wee one. They post a daily word of the day, which not only introduces you to unfamiliar words (like brummagem) but also reacquaints you with words you know (like scrumptious).

@grammarly

Writing has its stressful moments and @grammarly is here to bring the wordplay (this is not sponsored, btw) with inspirational quotes and humor.

@wordsofworth

@wordsofworth posts are friendly reminders to be good to ourselves (see here and here). IYou can never have enough of those kinds of reminders, right?

I hope you found some new Instagram accounts to follow. If there are Instagram accounts that bring out your inner word geek, share!

Write on,

Joy
