Welcome Western Massachusetts Writing Project!

Western Mass Writing Project

Western Massachusetts Writing Project is now Housed at Westfield State!

Westfield State University welcomes Western Massachusetts Writing Project to campus. WMWP, previously housed at UMass Amherst, is dedicated to providing a space for teachers to teach other teachers, as we all work towards improving student achievement and success. At WMWP, a variety of programs and professional development are offered, including a wide range of workshops and graduate courses, several summer institutes, two annual conferences, and youth writing programs.

“It was wonderful to hear from so many of those whose experiences have shaped the WMWP historically and enabled it to reach such a wide swath of teachers and students. It reinforced for me that at WSU, we want to continue to support empowering teachers to be strong writers and leaders so that they can reach more students and use the best practices in teaching writing in their own K-16 classrooms. I'm thrilled that WSU has demonstrated such support for the program, as those in both English and Education as well as the President turned out to welcome the WMWP to WSU.”
