RSS Feeds at the National Writing Project

RSS (short for Really Simple Syndication) feeds are a way to collect your favorite Web content in one place. They are convenient as they provide instant access to recently posted pages on your favorite websites.

In short, there's no need to surf to your favorite websites because you can stay abreast of new content through your RSS reader. And now you can receive RSS feeds from NWP.

Why would I want this?

NWP RSS feeds keep you up to date by providing brief summaries and links to newly posted items on NWP.org, including press releases, resources, key publications, and events.

What will I receive?

By choosing to receive a feed from NWP via RSS, you will receive headlines that link back to new items as they are posted on NWP.org. The feeds are provided free of charge and are updated throughout each week.

How does it work?

First you need a news reader or aggregator that displays RSS feeds. Both Yahoo and Google offer popular readers, but here is a list of readers to consider.

Once you have a reader, simply return to this page and subscribe to NWP's RSS feeds. You will then receive regular updates via your news reader.

A Note on Browsers

Firefox and Internet Explorer (IE) all have built-in RSS readers, meaning if you click on a link to an RSS feed, it will display in a readable fashion in your browser window. Google's browser (Chrome ) requires an extension to easily read links to RSS feeds. Apple has removed the built-in RSS reader in Safari 6, but also has extensions available under "RSS Tools" at https://extensions.apple.com.
