The NCTE has designated October 20, 2009 as the National Day on Writing, my morning’s email informs me.  Go to their website for information:

I’ve been thinking about putting together a story writing workshop with Welty as sample, prompt, backdrop, and everything else.  Maybe I need to tie this in somehow to the National Day on Writing.

What kind of to-do could we put on at JCJC for this?  What might you do at your own school?  Would you consider submitting yours or your students’ writing to the national archive?

My next story is “Powerhouse,” one I do love.  Tomorrow, I may even talk about it.  Today, I’m pressed for time and intrigued by the NCTE announcement.  Brainstorm with me if you will.  I’m sure I’ll post more about this later.
