A Network of University-Based Sites

Delta State University proudly hosts the Delta Area Writing Project which is one of the more than 200 local sites that make up the National Writing Project network. Local sites are co-directed by faculty from the local university and from K–12 schools. Local sites serve all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

Sites work in partnership with area school districts to offer high-quality professional development programs for educators. National Writing Project continues to add new sites each year, with the goal of placing a writing project site within reach of every teacher in America. The network now includes two associated international sites.

After participating in an invitational summer institute, Delta Area Writing Project teacher consultants meet through a variety of continuity events. From opportunities to socialize and write to showcases of teacher research, DAWP participants find chances to reconnect with one another, share their writing, and celebrate teaching.
