Every October 20, the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE) celebrates “the importance, joy, and evolution of writing” through events across the country to observe the National Day on Writing (NDOW).

On Thursday, October 20, 12:00-2:00pm, on the 2nd floor of the Hodges Library, the Writing Center, Hodges Library, and the First-Year Composition Program will host an event to encourage students and faculty to take a moment to reflect on the many ways that writing plays a key role in our lives.

Activities will include a graffiti “wall,” add-a-sentence story, photo caption contest, and a drawing.   All students are encouraged to participate.
