Penn State Lehigh Valley Writing Project

Welcome, Fellows

discussion groupRemember your Institute summer, those intense, heady days of writing, response groups, demo lessons, followed by a return to the classroom armed with research, strategies, and conviction that writing matters? Well, it still does, and the LVWP is still here, sharing research, strategies, and conviction.

Visit this page regularly for year-round updates and opportunities for Fellows who wish to enhance and extend their professional development with the latest innovations in teaching writing from the LVWP.

We know how important community is in sustaining and supporting our teacher-selves.  That’s why LVWP is working hard to forge new connections for Fellows and strengthen existing ones through exciting new programming and continuity opportunities.
