The National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE) is busy creating a National Day on Writing, slated for October 20, 2009, as a way of recognizing all kinds of writers—students, retirees workers—wherever we are—home, school, work, community group, vacation.
In connection with this event, the NCTE has started a digital archive called the National Gallery of Writing and invited anyone interested to contribute a piece of writing. The idea is to make available to the world a searchable website on any kind of writing.
