NWPM Site Directory

There are eleven writing project sites in Michigan, each housed at a public Michigan university, and they are organized into a statewide network called National Writing Projects of Michigan (NWPM). NWPM sites work together to share resources, programs, special events, and opportunities in our state, and increasingly work together to speak on behalf of the National Writing Project about critical issues in education in Michigan.

The National Writing Projects of Michigan website can be found at this link:


Each site offers local programming to teachers and other educators, including an annual Invitiational Summer Institute. For information about local opportunities and programs, click below on a link to any NWPM site.
