National Day on Writing
About the National Day on Writing

Why Writing?
People in every walk of life, in every kind of work, and at every age write more than ever before for personal, professional, and civic purposes. (See Writing in the 21st Century.)

They write through text messages and IMs, they use video cameras and cell phones, and, yes, even traditional pen and paper.
The social nature of writing invites people in every walk of life, in every kind of work, and at every age to make meaning through composing.
New technologies expand the possibilities for composing in multiple media and for speaking to wider audiences than ever before and at a faster pace than ever before in our history.

Young people using forms of digital media are leading the way in new forms of composing. (See Writing Between the Lines—and Everywhere Else.)
Writers continue to learn how to write for different purposes, audiences, and occasions throughout their lifetimes.
Why a National Day on Writing?
In light of the significance of writing in our national life, to draw attention to the remarkable variety of writing we engage in, and to help writers from all walks of life recognize how important writing is to their lives, NCTE established October 20 as The National Day on Writing. The National Day on Writing.

THANKS FOR TAKING THE TIME TO STOP BY,

About Bernadette

I live in the small town of Haddonfield, NJ. I am at an age in my life when I seem to spend time thinking and musing about life. These musings are usually stimulated by my walks through Haddonfield, my reading of books and fellow bloggers, and my interaction with my group of fabulous family and friends.
