National Day on Writing

Writing is a daily practice for millions of Americans, but few notice how integral writing has become to daily life in the 21st century. To draw attention to the remarkable variety of writing we engage in and help make writers from all walks of life aware of their craft, the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE) established National Day on Writing. On Thursday, October 8, 2009, the U.S. Senate passed a resolution declaring October 20 as the National Day on Writing!

To find out what you can do to help put writing front and center, check out NCTE’s website.

And…consider publishing your writing to the National Gallery of Writing. Choose any piece you’ve ever written, spoken, drawn, texted, or videoed, and submit it to the NCTE.

Happy Writing!
