Every October 20th, the NCTE celebrates your Right To Write with a TweetUp. MC students, faculty, and staff are encouraged to participate by using the #WhyIWrite hashtag and share with the Twittersphere why you write. Last year, #WhyIWrite trended all day on Twitter with more than 60,000 tweets.
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.
(1) Letters Home
Letter writing remains an important skill in our digital age.
Here's your chance to send a letter anywhere in the world, to whom will you write?

Book sale proceeds are invested back in the library to enhance services and resources for students, faculty, and staff. In recent years, the book sale has enabled the library to purchase new computer monitors, expand its collection of fiction, and provide snacks and games during exam week.
