In celebration of the National Day on Writing on Oct. 20, a UW-Rock County student group is encouraging the community to think about all the other October observances and write down some thoughts at a free public writing event.
The Delta Gamma chapter of Sigma Kappa Delta English honor society will host a three-hour event called “Writing About Awareness” to encourage people to write and to enjoy and learn from the writing of others. The event will take place from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Hyatt Smith Hall Commons on the UW-Rock County campus at 2909 Kellogg Ave.
Participants can write on large sheets of provided paper about any topic, but may be inspired by other October awareness initiatives, such as:
•National Breast Cancer Awareness Month
•National Arts and Humanities Month
•Adopt-A-Shelter Dog Month
•Filipino American History Month
•Domestic Violence Awareness Month
•Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender History Month
•Fair Trade Month
•National Cybersecurity Awareness Month
