New York City Writing Project
The New York City Writing Project is an organization of dedicated teachers committed to the improved teaching of literacy. We have been providing literacy PD to NYC public schools and teachers for more than thirty years. Established in 1978 at Lehman College, CUNY as the New York City site of the National Writing Project, we are a legacy site within a network of more than 200 university-based professional development programs nationwide. Over our 40-year history, more than 12,000 NYC teachers have taken part in Project-sponsored seminars, workshops, graduate courses and institutes. Their work in the teaching of writing has reached more than 250,000 students.
