The UWM Writing Project – Young Writers’ Academy

Gr. 6-8

The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee Writing Project (UWMWP) is an active chapter of the National Writing Project (NWP). Founded in 1974, NWP’s ongoing mission is to provide writing teachers resources and training to cultivate new methods of teaching, research on teaching and a passionately professional writing community. Teacher-Consultants (TCs) participate in an accredited, graduate-level Summer Institute, as well as smaller in-services throughout the year. What makes TCs unique is their pledge and dedication to writing. This passion includes creating new ways to inspire writers of all ages and a personal commitment to their own writing practices. 

The partnership of College for Kids & Teens (CFK&T) with the UWMWP allows student writers an opportunity to work with three professionally and academically trained TCs per class! These instructors utilize materials from the NWP to create a supportive and engaged writing community, which provides students with a week of invigorating writing experience. Furthermore, both CFK&T and the UWMWP share the goal of community building. So, the TCs selected to work each week are passionate writers from the Metro-Milwaukee community.
