Welcome to the National Writing Project Annual Meeting! The Annual Meeting is the one time each year that Writing Project writers/makers, teachers, hackers, and learners come together in one large gathering of the community that is the National Writing Project to explore connected learning and leadership. We hope site leaders, teachers, and guests will find many opportunities for interesting and informative conversations throughout the day as they participate in discussion groups, sessions, and networking with colleagues from around the country.
Information on Travel and Housing for the meeting can be found here. Additional details will be posted on this site as they become available, so check back often!
