National Essay Day is an annual awareness campaign promoted by One Freelance Limited. It aims to celebrate the joy of essay writing that is free from formal academic requirements, to draw attention to the writing challenges students face and to highlight the importance of timely writing assistance.
National Essay Day has a powerful historical background. February, 28 is the birthdate of Michel de Montaigne, the author of the first writings named “essays”.
Michel de Montaigne was one of the most significant philosophers of the French Renaissance, known for popularizing essays as a literary genre. In his writings, he was never afraid to say what he really thought, no matter how unorthodox his ideas were.
On National Essay Day, students and all interested are invited to follow Michel de Montaigne’s paradigm of essay writing.
