From The National Council Of Teachers Of English:

Writing is an important part of life. It helps us communicate and work with each other, supports our learning, and helps us remember.

The National Day on Writing® celebrates writing—and the many places, reasons, and ways we write each day—as an essential component of literacy. Since 2009, #WhyIWrite has encouraged thousands of people to lift their voices to the things that matter most to them.
