Washington DC -- As good writing touches all spheres of our lives, the US Senate has declared Oct. 20, 2009 as the inaugural National Day on Writing.
This day was created to recognize how important writing is to our lives -- drawing attention to the remarkable varieties of writing, and acknowledging professional and freelance writers alike.

The National Day on Writing will:
  • Celebrate the foundation of writing in personal, professional, and civic lives;
  • Point to the importance of writing instruction and practice at every grade level, for every student, and in every subject area from preschool through college;
  • Emphasize the lifelong process of learning in composing for different audiences, purposes, and occasions;
  • Recognize and honor the scope and range of writing done; and
  • Encourage Americans to enjoy writing and to learn from the writing of others.
