Students to Celebrate the National Day on Writing

by Will Duncan, Public Relations Writer

The Writing Center at Cedarville will host a “writing walk” on Monday, Oct. 20, to celebrate the National Day on Writing. Writing stations will be open from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in front of the Stevens Student Center, Center for Biblical and Theological Studies, Dixon Ministry Center and in front of the library.  In the evening, from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., all the stations will converge inside the lower level of the Stevens Student Center. 

Four writing stations will be set up throughout campus to provide students with the materials to write notes of encouragement and gratitude to pastors, teachers, military personnel, mentors, custodial staff, the elderly and the sick.

“We hope to provide an opportunity for students, faculty and staff to show their gratitude for those they appreciate or those who may need encouraged,” said Isaac Mayeux, assistant professor of English.

The Writing Center will give away four copies “of Letters of Note: An Eclectic Collection of Correspondence Deserving of a Wider Audience” to participating students, in hopes of reviving the lost art of letter writing. Students participating in the walk will enter a raffle to win the books.

This event is free and open to the public.
