I know I just asked a question and you already replied but... Technically isn't writing a visual art? I mean, you see the words. Now, I'm not saying that spoken word is visual. But writing, like books and poems, is totally visual. You have to see them with your eyes to appreciate them.
Yeah, in that sense, it is literally visual. However, the term "visual arts", as a whole and not just taking it as two separate words, has its own meaning that does not include writing, but does include a broad spectrum of media and forms.
In the end, you and I could debate about writing being a “visual” art as much as we want, but we don’t accept writing problems. Not because we don’t consider writing to be a serious, deep, and creative pursuit, but because that’s not the area we cover. If this bothers you, I apologize, but that’s how this blog is gonna roll.
