NWP Turns 50
Join the Party
Now Through 2024
In November 2023 we begin a year-long celebration of the National Writing Project’s 50th Birthday. Beginning at NCTE we will launch a year-long campaign celebrating this milestone moment. The party is just getting started.
Tend the Flame
This community poem was created by the Wick Poetry Center at Kent State University in celebration of NWP's 50th anniversary. The model poem draws from lines written by NWP teachers who participated in a writing workshop and invites everyone to add their voice.
Share Your NWP Story
This collaborative activity is a chance for participants to interview each other and contribute to the story of NWP. Make a copy of this slideshow, share it with your group, and invite them to create their own slides and social media graphics to join the online celebration.
