The NWP Annual Meeting provides a
venue for teacher-leaders from writing project sites throughout the country to learn from each other and become familiar with national
trends and issues that affect the teaching of writing. Improving Writing and Learning in the nation's schools is the mission of the
NWP. There were more than 85 interactive workshops and demonstrations of effective practice presented at this year's meeting.
