Round 2: Celebrating Writing Eastern Kentucky

Round 2 of Celebrating Eastern Kentucky, the Morehead Writing Project’s tribute to National Day on Writing, is now underway.  Celebrating Writing Eastern Kentucky will spotlight the writers and writing of Eastern Kentucky through conversations about writing; creating poetry, fiction, and narratives; and having fun with writing. Running through the end of October, Round 2 will include #Memes, #FlashFiction, and discussing previous National Day on Writing themes #WhyIWrite and #WhatIWrite.

Round 1 included #6words stories, #micropoetry, and discussing the National Day on Writing theme #WriteMyCommunity.

Celebrating Writing Eastern Kentucky will wrap up at MWP’s 2014 Writing Eastern Kentucky Conference on Saturday, Nov. 8. The celebration will include three rounds of activities and each round will include three prompts: creative writing, word fun, and writing conversation.

Individual writers and groups can participate in person at the location of our campus and regional partners as well as online using the #WEKY hashtag on Twitter, the Celebrating Writing Eastern Kentucky page on Facebook, and the Google+ Celebrating Writing Eastern Kentucky community.

Eastern Kentucky teachers are encouraged to incorporate our activities into their classrooms throughout Celebrating Writing Eastern Kentucky and share the writing that results.
