Contribute to the National Gallery of Writing

Through the Google Docs Blog I have learned that the National Council of Teacher of English is looking for contributions to the National Gallery of Writing. The accepted submissions will be displayed on October 20 as a part of the National Day on Writing. Submissions to the National Gallery of Writing can be made individually or as a part of local gallery. Local galleries can be created by groups to organize their writing around a particular theme or topic. Any group can create a local gallery as long as there is one "point" person to curate the gallery.

Applications for Education
Creating a local gallery for your class to contribute to the National Gallery of Writing could be a good way provide your students with an authentic audience for their work.
