October 20th is the National Day on Writing in the US. See the press release here or the US Senate proclamation for 2012 here. To celebrate:

On October 19, tweet out your compositions of all sorts and post them to Twitter using the hashtag #WhatIWrite and, if space allows, #dayonwriting. Our goals are to share writings publicly while we get #WhatIWrite as a trending topic on Twitter . . .

The NCTE (National Council of Teachers of English) established the first National Day on Writing on October 20, 2009.  While my educational philosophy doesn’t often coincide with the NCTE’s, I share their desire to raise awareness of the importance of writing in the 21st century.  To celebrate in 2009, I placed six documents written by our Bama business students in the National Gallery of Writing. Check our their exceptional work!
