The National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE) has declared October 20, 2009, the first National Day on Writing to celebrate writing and show how integral it is to all our lives. In honor of the day, The Department of English within the Eberly College of Arts and Sciences at West Virginia University has asked the SOJ’s participation in celebrating our common love of writing!
WHO? Everyone! We encourage everyone with any connection to WVU to submit a piece of writing. We welcome WVU students, teachers, parents, staff, alumni, and retirees; area business owners and neighborhood residents; state legislators; WVU fans; and many more!
WHAT? Every kind of writing! Whether it’s a memo, a story, a video montage, a poster or brochure, a school assignment, a personal letter or e‐mail, a business plan, an audio file, or a photo, everyone writes and everyone has something important to share.
