National Day on Writing
Organize a celebration of writing in your school, group, or community on October 20, the National Day on Writing (or since the 20th is a Sunday this year, pick the day that's most convenient for all involved in your event). Also join #nctechat on Sunday, October 20, 8 p.m. ET, for a Twitter chat on the National Day on Writing.
National Day on Writing Tweet Out
Tweet out the way you use writing to make connections and post them to Twitter using the hashtag #write2connect and, if space allows, #dayonwriting. Our goals are to share your thoughts publicly while we get #write2connect as a trending topic on Twitter this year, just as #WhatIWrite was a trending topic last year and #WhyIWrite was a trending topic the year before!
