Express yourself! The National Day on Writing is Thursday, Oct. 20. Stop by the Hodges Library (Melrose entrance), 11 a.m. – 2 p.m., to tweet “Why I Write,” post to the National Day on Writing Facebook page, browse student-written publications, or create a postcard about writing (English 103 and 104 students get credit for doing this).
The National Day on Writing (www.ncte.org/dayonwriting), established in 2009 by the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE) celebrates composition in all forms and demonstrates how writing is a vital part of our everyday lives.
UTK’s 2011 National Day on Writing events are sponsored by the University Libraries, the First-Year Composition Program, and the Writing Center.
