“Dear Dr. Early, I love your write outs!“
Write Out 2022 is STEAM-Powered
Write Out is a free two-week celebration of writing, making, and sharing inspired by the great outdoors, and was created through a partnership of the National Writing Project and the National Park Service. It is a public invitation to get out and create that is supported with a series of online activities, made especially for educators, students, and families, to explore national parks and other public spaces. The goal is to connect and learn through place-based writing and sharing using the common hashtag #writeout.LEARN MORE

This year’s Write Out is STEAM- Powered (STEAM = Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) and will run October 9-23, 2022. To support this theme, Write Out will be organized around the use of notebooks and journals that inspire observing, describing, and annotating just like STEAM professionals do!
