UNO to Celebrate National Day on Writing Oct. 20
Omaha - The University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) Writing Center invites students, faculty, staff and the public to participate in the National Day on Writing, an annual celebration of the written word. Those interested can join the Writing Center Staff on Thursday, Oct. 20, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in 150 Arts and Sciences Hall 150 for food, fun, and the chance to compose personal six-word memoirs, autumnal haikus or six words of writing advice. All writing will be submitted to the National Gallery of Writing, a digital archive that showcases compositions from writers of all ages and talents from across the country.
The National Day on Writing was established in 2009 by the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE) to celebrate composition in all forms and demonstrate how writing is a vital part of everyday life. Writers – from students and educators to business owners and retirees – have submitted works to the National Gallery of Writing.
For inspiration, check out some of the writing examples posted in the first floor hallway of UNO’s Arts and Sciences Hall the week leading up to this exciting event.
For more information about this event, contact the UNO Writing Center at (402) 554.2946 or firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information about the National Day on Writing visit www.ncte.org/dayonwriting.
