Who We Are

Appalachian Mountains Writing Project is sponsored by the Appalachian State University Department of English. It is a model of the widely acclaimed National Writing Project, created nearly thirty years ago in order to improve the teaching and learning of writing in all grade levels and disciplines. We are a linked network of K-14 teachers from all subject areas across Western North Carolina. We welcome you to join us!

2023 Summer Institute

The 2023 Summer Institute will be open to 15 interested teachers of writing from all disciplines in grades K-14. Current Department of English graduate students will receive 6 hours of elective credit toward their degree. Other interested participants may register as non-degree seeking students. Or, if they do not wish to receive graduate credit and just want 12 Continuing Education Units (CEUs), they may register for no credit. Registration for Summer 2023 will open in January 2023. For full details, see the Summer Institute link above or email us at AMWP@appstate.edu.
