The NCTE (National Council of Teachers of English) is sponsoring a National Day on Writing today Tuesday, October 20, 2009.

And many of my students participated by posting about it on their blogs and by posting writing here on a special gallery for Ventura College: http://www.galleryofwriting.org/galleries/52342.

Ventura College Students–Here’s a special gallery for you on the National Day of Writing!

An invitation to write…
Tuesday, October 20 has been declared the National Day on Writing!  Here’s a special gallery for Ventura College students, staff, administrators, and instructors to post your writing: http://www.galleryofwriting.org/galleries/523428.

WHAT?
A National Day on Writing—October 20, 2009— and a Gallery of Writing where you can contribute any type of writing composition that matters to you.

WHO?
Everyone! We encourage everyone to submit a piece of writing: students, instructors, administrators, classified staff, and many more.

WHEN?
October 20, 2009 is the big day, but don’t let that stop you from participating NOW.   Send your writing to our online gallery. This is a Ventura College-specific site.

WHY?
Because we, as a nation, are writing like never before—through text messages and IMs, with video cameras and cell phones, and, yes, even with traditional pen and paper. Whether it is done in a notebook or on a blog, writing, in its many forms, has become daily practice for millions of Americans.

You can also check out other galleries at http://www.galleryofwriting.org/.  Our Ventura gallery ID # is 523428.

Thanks to Jaclyn Hardy for setting this up and letting us know!
