We Are All Writers Today…

Today people write as never before—texting, on blogs, with video cameras and cell phones, and, yes, even with traditional pen and paper.  People write at home, at work, inside and out of school… — This is a direct quote from the NCTE’s (National Council of Teachers of English) promotion of Kathleen Blake Yancey’s Writing in the 21st Century.

Yes: In different ways, we are all writers today, and writing has become a major part of our lives.

On October 20, 2009, we will celebrate the National Day on Writing with the unveiling of the all-new National Gallery on Writing, an online collection of our writing. I am curator of the Writers on Twitter gallery and I invite you to submit your writing to be included in our gallery.

Until next time, write on! ;-)
