Words Matter Week is listed in Chase’s Annual Calendar of Events 2010:
National Words Matter Week
Celebrated annually, during the first full week in March
This special week, sponsored by the National Association of Independent Writers and Editors, focuses on the importance of words, particularly the written word. The week features free teleseminars with individuals in the writing, editing, and publishing fields, plus a blog challenge and a charity opportunity benefiting First Book.
Participants are encouraged to share stories of Word Super-Heros– people or organizations that shore up standards of written English; funny word errors spotted in public places; and recommendations of good resources for logophiles (word lovers). NAIWE requests that all submissions be family friendly.
