Creativity Crate · Words Wanted

October 16, is National Dictionary Day, which celebrates and commemorates the birthday of Noah Webster. In 1806, Webster published his first dictionary, A Compendious Dictionary of the English Language; it took twenty-seven years to complete. To evaluate the etymology of words, Webster learned twenty-six languages, including Old English (Anglo-Saxon), German, Greek, Latin, Italian, Spanish, French, Hebrew, Arabic and Sanskrit.

On a day that’s all about words, we invite you to submit a prompt, short story or poem so that we can share it back to our Creativity Crate Community.
