The Greater Madison Writing Project

The Greater Madison Writing Project (GMWP), at UW–Madison’s office of Professional Learning and Community Education (PLACE), is an affiliate of National Writing Project (NWP) network. GMWP creates a community for PK-16 teachers who share and learn new strategies that help students become accomplished writers and learners.Through the NWP's professional development model, teachers in all subject areas and at all levels learn new strategies for helping their students become accomplished writers and learners. Teachers also become members of a professional community that helps them keep their teaching fresh and vibrant.

PLACE draws on the best ideas and people in UW–Madison’s School of Education to provide transformational learning experiences for artists, educators, leaders, and lifelong learners around the world.
