As of July 1, 2012, new writing submissions will not be accepted but visitors will be able to view more than 3,300 galleries and read any of the nearly 33,000 writing contributions in the searchable archive. NCTE will continue to review and approve, as appropriate, those writing contributions received prior to July 1. There are still many ways to celebrate the National Day on Writing on October 20 and the summer months are a great time to begin thinking of how you’ll take part! Read More
Welcome to the National Gallery of Writing. You should not submit the same composition to more than one gallery. The writing will be reviewed to ensure that it meets the guidelines of the Gallery Curator, and either posted to the Gallery of your choosing or referred to the Gallery of the National Council of Teachers of English. When you select the "contribute my writing now" button you will be prompted for information about the piece you are submitting and about yourself. You have the option to share this information with readers through the site search engine, or to keep it sheltered from searches. Once you have provided the necessary information and permission to publish, you will have the opportunity to choose the destination Gallery where your work will appear. When your work reaches its destination Gallery, you will receive an email indicating that it has arrived and is being reviewed. Upon completion of the review you will be notified regarding its status within 30 business days. As a contributor to the National Gallery of Writing you will retain copyright of your writing contribution. The following notice will appear next to your contribution.
