Prepping for National Day on Writing, 2017!

Prepping for National Day on Writing, 2017!

Who doesn’t write? From sending a text to drafting a novel, writing is part of our daily lives. In the spirit of writing, the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE) commemorates every October 20 as the National Day on Writing. (Fun fact: The US Congress passed several laws that also officially commemorates this day, as well.)

The WRMC will be hosting a few activities on campus next week to celebrate! You can participate with us a few ways:

From October 16-October 18, during the lunch hours (11:35am-12:20pm) you can come to the Student Center and write on our board why you write.

All week, you will see these slips on campus (below). Fill one out, slide it under the Writing Center’s Door, and we will use it as part of our wall mural.

And, of course, student bloggers have been invited to express why they write on our blog, so keep checking back for new posts and perspectives on writing!
