The National Day on Writing has come and gone; but the spirit that inspired it, we hope, is still with us. Here’s one way to keep that spirit alive:
The WPA’s National Conversation on Writing is continuing, and our conversations would be enriched by hearing about how you celebrated this special day. NCoW invites you to share the stories and artifacts of your celebration—writing generated, photographs of events, narratives or videos that document those moments, and so forth.
To submit your stories and artifacts in any medium, just go to www.ncow.org/site , and there you’ll find information under the “Contribute” link about how you can submit your work to our archives—and so help us to keep the national conversation on writing going. And while you’re there, have a look around at the other features of this site, a site that is meant to support your efforts as a literacy educator. Hopefully, you'll be hearing about each others' celebrations via this site soon.
One day is not enough to celebrate literacy; let’s keep the momentum going by sharing the various celebrations of Oct 20th and ideas for making each day in the future a “day on writing.” We hope you’ll join in with this important WPA initiative.
Feel free to contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Shannon Carter (Shannon_Carter@tamu-commerce.edu) if you have any questions or ideas on how we can help develop this ongoing effort. Many thanks, and hope to hear about your celebrations of literacy. Dominic
