Write Out 2023 is a collaborative project with the National Writing Project and the National Park Service, in which we celebrate all things Poetry, Prose, and Parks.
Notice Nature … Try a Haiku!
Seek a Sit Spot … Compose a 6-Word Story!
Create a Connection … Craft a Found Poem (or Story)!
The possibilities are endless.
Write Out is a free two-week celebration of writing, making, and sharing inspired by the great outdoors. 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.
Write Out runs every October and includes Indigenous People’s Day and the National Day on Writing. Themes change year-to-year and overlap with the monthly themes of the National Park Service
Here at Nicodemus we're challenging you to write a poem based on where you live, like this anonymous Nicodemus Poet did in 1905.
