Across the country, teacher-leaders at local Writing Project sites offer our signature professional development and leadership programs for teachers and faculty, and design customized inservice programs for local schools, districts, and higher education institutions. NWP also partners with learning institutions like museums and libraries to create exciting programs for teachers and youth that leverage the power of writing to inspire and extend learning beyond the school walls.
Local Writing Project sites work to spark young people’s creativity and innovation through community-based camps, after-school and summer programs that mix writing, media creation, mentorship and civic-engagement. NWP camps network youth with partners like the National Park Service, local museums and libraries, and local campuses and makerspaces. Youth can also participate in NWP’s Writing Our Future initiatives, a series of youth online publishing projects that are designed by educators for educators and the young people they work with. Intended for use in schools, libraries, and other educational settings, all projects are COPPA compliant and educator-managed.
