Western Massachusetts Writing Project

The Western Massachusetts Writing Project works with local communities of teachers and education professionals to deepen the understanding of learning and teaching writing. Affiliated with the National Writing Project, the program facilitates professional development while paying special attention to issues of race, gender, class, language, and culture in the classroom. The goal is to work together to challenge and transform established practices and ultimately provide a more dynamic and effective learning experience for students of all backgrounds.
