Dean Morgan Junior High
Participate in National Day on Writing with DMJH
The community is invited to participate in the National Day on Writing on Oct. 20!
In the Dean Morgan Junior High Gallery, students are collecting writings from the Dean Morgan community of students, staff, parents and alumni – stories, poems, recipes, e-mails, blogs and even audio, video and artwork – for an online gallery.
You can be a part of it! Whether you’re a parent, a business owner, a retiree or a carpenter, we invite you to pick a piece of writing that matters to you and contribute it to the gallery at http://galleryofwriting.org/galleries/273627.
For those having trouble getting started, the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE) has created tips for writers. For the curious, some sample writings also are available. For those needing inspiration, popular authors and celebrities, such as Sarah McCoy who tells us "a day without writing is like a day without food," talk about writing.
Established by NCTE, the National Gallery and the National Day highlight the remarkable variety of writing we engage in today, provide a collection for research on whether writing today has risen to new highs or sunk to new lows, and help us help others to write better.
