Each Wednesday check this blog for a strategy, process, or reflection for illustration with the iPad app ProCreate. This Wednesday Wrap Up , I share about the illustrating and writing I do for WriteOut.


The inspiration for October is, of course, the season of autumn and the lovely weather that prompts us to enjoy the outdoors without the blazing heat of summer or the freezing cold of winter. That may be why WriteOut is in October.

What is October WRITEOUT?

WriteOut is a joint venture and adventure of the National Writing Project and the National Park Service — a STEAM-powered Write Out 2022. Organized as a public invitation to get out and create, supported by a series of free online activities, Write Out invites 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. Learn more and sign up:

What have I created?

Today’s wrap up is to share the writing and art for this two week adventure. Find my work and others’ work here:

Enjoy the enthusiasm of park rangers and educators through the United States and beyond as we celebrate and write about the outdoors. Find activities and links to park service activities on the National Writing Project WriteOut site: WriteOut.

Why I Write: National Day on Writing

And please — tomorrow, October 20th, join in on the #whyIwrite and #NationalDayonWriting activities that are port of the WriteOut program activities.

The National Day on Writing is sponsored by the National Writing Project and the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE) to  share #WHYIWRITE. Everyone is invited to take this one step further by writing outside as part of the Write Out partnership with the National Park Service.

So, tomorrow especially, find a place outside to breath deep and write — on your phone, in a notebook, in the dirt, or on the sidewalk. Share it with your family, friends, neighbors or someone close to you. Perhaps take a picture of it or even record yourself reading it. Share on social media along with the hashtags #writeout and #whyiwrite. Here are a more invitations to this event, from Twitter:
