Join us to learn more about the NWP Archives Project, which will construct a living and usable history of our NWP. In addition to explaining the project, the show will include a segment featuring the voices of Writing Project TCs and directors sharing reflections on their own Writing Project experience and what the Writing Project means to them. NWP leaders who have donated to support the Archives Project will also be on hand to talk about what compelled them to give.
