Writing Center's Celebration of National Day on Writing

To promote the National Day on Writing, the Montgomery College Germantown Writing Center will host a special event, an exhibit on writing instruments, and several contests

Korean Calligraphy Demonstration

Witness an awe-inspiring demonstration of Korean calligraphy. Myoung-Won Kwon, also known as Mook Jae, his pen name, will write on a 20-foot long piece of paper using a mop-sized brush. Mr. Kwon has performed for the Smithsonian and Library of Congress. Experience writing come alive as an art form! Get a sneak preview by watching this short video that documents his performance at the 2010 Smithsonian Folklife Festival. 

History of Writing Instruments

A history-in-brief of writing instruments will be on display in the Writing Center from October 21 to 25. See what Mesopotamians used for writing cuneiform, a functioning typewriter, and more.

Magnetic Poetry Contest

A magnetic poetry contest will take place during the week of October 21 to 25. Create your poem using the magnets on the blue door across from the Information Desk, then take a picture and post it to the Writing Center's Facebook page. This will automatically enter you in the contest! If you do not have a camera phone, please ask a Writing Center staff member for assistance. You can also write down your poem and post it on our Facebook wall or email it to Allison Hutchison at 

Facebook "Status Story" Contest

Post your "status story" on the Writing Center's Facebook page. In the same vein of Hemingway's six-word story, your challenge is to write a story using only the space in your status! As with the magnetic poetry contest, entries are automatically received by posting them on our Facebook page, or you can email entries to Allison Hutchison at
