The network of writing project sites continues to expand with new sites added at six universities throughout the United States this year.

The National Writing Project welcomes six new sites into its network this year, a network that now numbers 195 sites and spans 50 states, Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands. Each of the new sites will hold its first invitational summer institute this summer (2006). These sites and their leaders will be profiled in upcoming issues of The Voice.

Each year, NWP receives about 30 new-site inquiries. Completed new-site applications are due in September, after which a team of NWP senior staff members and representative site leaders evaluate the applications, examining each for everything from university affiliation and goals to budget proposals. Funding for new sites is competitive and tied by legislation to the NWP model. Learn more about starting a writing project site.
