National Day on Writing
at Cuyahoga Valley National Park
Visitors stopped by the NWP-KSU activity table at Cuyahoga Valley National Park's Octagon Shelter throughout the afternoon of October 20 to celebrate the National Day on Writing. Participants engaged in activities such as "What Am I?" riddles, personalized comic strips, a "leaf" poem, or a nature journal. Each visitor also contributed a line to a "Where I'm From" poem, as well as a found poem
The event was co-hosted by Cuyahoga Valley National Park and NWP-KSU as part of a two-week celebration of Write Out, a place-based learning partnership between the National Writing Project and the National Park Service.
