English Department faculty are challenging students this year to become involved in one of two writing events and have provided students with an example by sharing why they write.
This year's National Day on Writing takes place Thursday, October 20. MC Writing faculty and the Writing Center are sponsoring two events: a letter writing project and a Twitter contest.
Here's your chance to send a letter anywhere in the world, to whom will you write?
When: Thu, Oct. 20, 11am to 8pm
Where: Leland Speed Library, Lobby
What: Write a letter to anywhere in the
world. You provide the thought,
and we'll provide the stamp!
