The Greater Madison Writing Project (GMWP) is an affiliate of the National Writing Project (NWP) network, a nationally-acclaimed professional learning community that puts educators’ knowledge, experience, and voices at its center.
Our Vision is to lead an education revolution through writing where teachers are at the center and students are at the heart of every classroom, school, and district in our nation.
Our Mission is to serve as a professional home that nurtures, inspires, and empowers educators to be engaged writers, researchers, leaders, and activists in their schools and communities so they will nurture, inspire, and empower students to be writers, researchers, leaders, and activists, themselves.
GMWP offers both professional development for educators as well as enrichment opportunities for children and young adult writers. GMWP is a joint effort between the College of Letters & Science and the School of Education.
