On Thursday, October 8, the U.S. Senate passeda resolution declaring October 20 as theNational Day on Writing!

October 20, 2009
In the National Gallery of Writing we’re collecting all kinds of writing from people from all walks of life—people just like you. Submit stories, poems, recipes, emails, blogs, even audio, video, and artwork.

Want more information on contributing to the National Gallery which will open to the world on October 20? Learn more about submitting your writing and about starting a gallery.

For those having trouble getting started, NCTE has created Tips for Writers and made some sample writings available. For those needing inspiration, popular authors and celebrities, such as Sarah McCoy who tells us "a day without writing is like a day without food," talk about writing.

Established by NCTE, the National Gallery and the National Day highlight the remarkable variety of writing we engage in today; provide a collection for research on whether writing today has risen to new highs or sunk to new lows; and help us help others to write better.
