On the 10-year anniversary of the National Day on Writing (an initiative of the National Council of Teachers of English), across the country in schools, libraries, homes, businesses, and even on sidewalks, folks will be finding creative ways to tell the world why they write. All of this gets shared out using the #WhyIWrite hashtag. Join Gate City Writes in celebrating the importance of writing in our daily lives.
HOW CAN YOU PARTICIPATE?
Tell the world why you write in a post, picture, video or blog and then share using #WhyIWrite and #GateCityWrites.
2. GET YOUR STUDENTS WRITING!
Use this celebration as an excuse to play with words in your classroom. Check out www.gatecitywrites.com/blog for classroom activities you can use this month.
3. INVITE YOUR COMMUNITY TO WRITE!
Spread the word in your department and school about the National Day on Writing. Invite folks to write with your students and with communities around the Triad in Gate City Write’s Longest Story Ever. We’ll get you started, you write the rest.
