About SNWP

SNWP Mission

SNWP is committed to designing and delivering the highest quality professional experiences in an effort to improve and transform the teaching of writing. We serve as an authentic professional learning community in which educators build a sound pedagogical foundation, sustain and develop leadership capability, and collaboratively inquire into their practice in a supportive environment.


SNWP Vision

SNWP envisions a dynamic community of empowered and energized educators who lead and inspire others to become accomplished writers, engaged learners, and active participants in an interconnected, global society.


SNWP History

Located in Las Vegas, Nevada, SNWP has been working with Southern Nevada teachers and students since 1984 as part of a network of over 200 National Writing Project sites.

Each summer SNWP holds the four week Invitational Summer Institute on the campus of UNLV where educators participate in an intensive, interactive professional development experience that transforms the teaching of writing.

Each year, SNWP Youth Programs positively impact the lives of hundreds of Southern Nevada students and teachers through Writing Contests and Summer Youth Camps.
