Recognizing the importance of writing in the lives of us all, NCTE established and celebrated its first National Day on Writing on October 20, 2009; the NCTE National Gallery of Writing was also unveiled on that day in 2009.
Since that day more than 30,000 pieces of writing, including poems, videos, essays, letters, audio recordings, blog entries, artwork, email and text messages, and short stories, have been submitted.
At NCTE's request, the U.S. Senate has passed Resolution S.298 declaring October 20, 2011, as the National Day on Writing!
