November 15, 2012 will mark the 10th anniversary of I Love To Write Day, a grassroots effort to have people of all ages practice their writing skills. Created by Delaware author John Riddle, I Love To Write Day is an opportunity for people of all ages to write something: a poem, an essay, a letter to the editor, a short story, start a novel, finish a novel the possibilities are endless! On the first I Love To Write Day, 11,328 schools all across the country held special writing events and activities. Last year, over 20,000 schools signed up. This year the goal is to have an I Love To Write Day program in over 25,000 schools. Please help spread the word: tell schools, libraries and bookstores in your community about I Love To Write Day.
