Penn State Lehigh Valley Writing Project


Our Fellows both sustain and are sustained by the work of the site.  When they engage with LVWP, Fellows contribute to all students' learning, serve other teachers, and create a vibrant professional home for strengthening the teaching of writing.  In return, site work provides exciting new opportunities for Fellows to grow personally and professionally, to take on leadership roles and become agents of reform.  As a community and a network, we support each other in meaningful work that builds on the expertise of all.

Visit this page regularly for year-round updates and opportunities for Fellows to enhance and extend their professional development by contributing to the work of this vibrant community of teachers, writers, learners, and leaders.

For more about LVWP programs be sure to visit our page for teachers.


Year of (Re)Connection

Tap back into the power of community and discover ways you can (re)connect by filling out our short LVWP Fellows Census.
