Last friday was National Writing Day! What a fun day for the Sweetland Center. After years of writing on my own and trying to make writing more prevalent in my English Major, I was very ecstatic to be a part of a community that was all about writing, and celebrating it!
I came to the diag and saw a few people I knew working the booth with chalk and free food, as well as my Gateway teacher Naomi Silver. After talking about how amazing the minor in writing was for about 30 minutes I decided it was time to write.
The diag was covered with “Go Blue”s and “Michigan Wolverine”s that I decided I’d stick to a classic quote by Ernest Hemingway. No significance to the words, I just thought it was a fun quote to put down in chalk. I had a great time expressing myself and celebrating with fellow writing enthusiasts! I’m excited to get even more involved in the program.
