Are you unfamiliar with the Greater Madison Writing Project? We’re excited to tell you about our group and to learn about you as well. To begin, we’d like to ask you a few simple questions.

Do you believe . . .

➔ We write to learn?
➔ It is important to teach rather than assign writing?
➔ Your own growth as a writer would enhance your teaching of writing?
➔ You can grow as a professional educator by exploring your own instruction in a safe and supportive environment with other committed educators doing the same?

If you answered yes,​ then the Greater Madison Writing Project (GMWP) is the perfect place for you. The GMWP brings together select groups of outstanding teachers who work with students in all academic content areas and at all grade levels, kindergarten through college. As a community of learners we immerse ourselves in reading and deep discussions about the craft and teaching of writing; we investigate and share our successful teaching practices, as well as our struggles; and we engage in the writing process ourselves.
