UF to Celebrate National Day on Writing
University of Findlay’s writing center and Shafer Library are teaming up to celebrate the National Day on Writing on Oct. 20-21, 2022 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., with an Instagram competition using the hashtag #ufwritingday22. National Day on Writing is a day to recognize and celebrate writing in all its forms
Participants will be able to engage in a journey across campus that prompts them to write as they go. The theme of “magic” corresponds to the journey being a fantastical one filled with the sights and sounds of the Halloween season.
Beginning at the Ritz Auditorium to receive a starting prompt, participants can work alone or in groups to write a six-part story. There will be six locations on campus that correspond to familiar creepy settings: A haunted theater, a witch’s house, an asylum, a wizard’s lair, a wooded cemetery, and an abandoned well. Participants will use photos and captions uploaded to Instagram to publish their story, and the event organizers will review the stories and select one to receive a prize.
