America promotes writing with National Day of Writing initiatives


Christina Frierman

English teacher Christina Frierman set up class to prompt students to discuss the art of writing.

Teachers and students celebrated the National Day of Writing last week, starting on Oct. 20. Established in 2009 by the Senate Resolutions in Congress, the NDoW possesses the goal to encourage Americans of all ages to appreciate and enjoy the art of writing. 

“I write because I love stories, I love reading, and I believe they go hand in hand,” said English teacher Christina Frierman. “Personally, I write for a therapy that helps me express my feelings and get rid of my stress. I also love to write in front of students to help and inspire them.”
