National Day On Writing Is Today

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) created a National Day on Writing. On October 8 the Senate passed a resolution declaring October 20, 2009, the National Day on Writing. 

Today, a gallery of submitted works will be opened up for everyone to view a wide variety of pieces.  Groups will also be celebrating the day across the country.
