National Writing Project

Start a Site

The National Writing Project accepts new site applications each year in January from eligible university partners in the U.S. Before starting the application process, we encourage interested university faculty to learn more about the NWP and the work of local Writing Project sites; watch this video about the evolution of one Writing Project site; and contact Writing Project sites in your state or region to see if they serve your area, to ask questions, and/or discuss the potential for partnerships.

If after browsing the information on our website and contacting the nearest Writing Project site(s) you would like to learn more about the application process and what it takes to start and maintain a successful NWP site, send an email to
