Everyone knows the old saying “The Pen Is Mightier Than The Sword” but I think that might be taking the phrase a little too literally.

This morning I received my monthly newsletter from them to find that the top news item from them is about $1000 grants that they are giving to people planning a trip. However, it seems that you need to be a literary killer in order to qualify for the grant:

Travel Grants: Earn $1000 for your trip
At the Wikimedia Conference, held in Frankfurt at the beginning of August, we presented our new programme:Travel Grants
The idea is that if you are planning this cool trip and you think it would be interesting to write about the places you go to on, you can receive a travel grant. We will be giving away $10,000 in total to the people with the best plans, best writings kills or most enthusiasm!

Assuming they meant writing skills I guess the person that wrote the email wont be qualifying for a grant!
