For the next few weeks we will be generating writing pieces that will either be entered into our school’s Writing Gallery or they will be recorded and uploaded to our Voxopox talkgroup. The Writing Gallery is a means to share your writing pieces with the world from its place within West Jeff’s Gallery. The Writing Gallery believes that because writing has become such an integral part of our lives that a day should be put aside to celebrate its importance.
People in every walk of life, in every kind of work, and at every age write more than ever before for personal, professional, and civic purposes. (See Writing in the 21st Century.)
They write through text messages and IMs, they use video cameras and cell phones, and, yes, even traditional pen and paper.
The social nature of writing invites people in every walk of life, in every kind of work, and at every age to make meaning through composing.
More and more people in all occupations deem writing as essential and influential in their work.
Newly developing technologies expand the possibilities for composing in multiple media and for speaking to wider audiences than ever before and at a faster pace than ever before in our history.”
