Toronto Writing Project

Toronto, Canada

Year Established



University of Toronto

Ontario Institute for Studies in Education

The Toronto Writing Project (TWP) was founded in 2015 by a community of university educators and classroom teachers who regard writing as a way to explore and address equity issues in K–adult classrooms. In that time, we have supported a local network of participating teachers through annual spring institutes, monthly creative writing workshops, a virtual book club and online speaker series, and a podcast, Teaching Writers Speak. Our Writing Project is rooted in many of the principles of local sites of the NWP—including regarding teachers as knowledge generators, recognizing research and teaching as coextensive, and regarding writing and the teaching of writing as a cornerstone of social justice education.
