New technologies have expanded the possibilities for writing in multiple media, including digital media. Through the National Day on Writing, created by the National Council of Teachers of English, participants can learn about–and play with–some of the many new possibilities for self-expression in written form.
CHASS is participating in National Day on Writing with an event in Caldwell Lounge on October 20 from 12:00 – 4:00 pm.
Students, faculty, and staff are invited to come explore different writing practices while interacting with other writers. Attendees can participate in various interactive writing practices through features such as Post-It graffiti walls, a scar journal in which writers can share their scar stories, a poetry-exchange table, a Kinect interactive poetry site, and an open mic/spokenword performance for those who choose to share their writing with others.
Twitter users can connect using the hashtag#wolfwrite, and Facebook users can check out the page “WolfWrite.”
