Celebrate the National Day on Writing

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!
