Unfortunately, essay writing has been reduced to just another academic activity. First-year students, on average, write 92 pages during the academic year, while seniors write 146 pages.

That’s a lot of pressure. And that is why most students do not enjoy essay writing. 

National Essay Day aims to finally change the unfavorable perception of academic writing and encourages to celebrate essay writing at least one day a year!

February, 28 is the perfect match. It’s the birthdate of Michel de Montaigne, the author of the first writings named “essays”. Michel de Montaigne was never afraid to write what he really thought, no matter how unorthodox his ideas were.

On National Essay Day, we want to inspire students to excel in essay writing and never be afraid to try and stay true to the very word “essay”, which means "to try" or "to attempt".

Let’s resurrect the nature of essay writing! Start writing what you really think, not what you are expected to think.

February, 28 will become the day you will start loving essay writing.
