The Philadelphia Writing Project is a non-profit network of professional educators serving school children in Philadelphia. Any vibrant network that addresses educational quality and equality requires the support of all members of the community. We hope that you will consider the work of our site and determine just how you might support our teachers and students. You can support PhilWP programming in general or contribute directly to a fund for teacher innovation.
Because of donations from TCs and friends of the Philadelphia Writing Project (PhilWP), PhilWP is able to maintain high quality professional development programs and its daily operations. PhilWP, located at theUniversity of Pennsylvania Graduate School of Education since 1986, is a site of the National Writing Project. It is a growing teacher network of over 800 teacher consultants who work in a variety of ways with teachers and other educators to explore literacy, writing, teaching and learning in their classrooms and schools. Make your gift today through our easyonline giving option to help sustain our service to teachers.
Contributions to the Philadelphia Writing Project are tax deductible and a formal receipt will be issued from the University of Pennsylvania.

The Philadelphia Writing Project sponsors its annual Walk for Literacy during Penn's Homecoming weekend. The route passes through Penn Park (217 South 33rd St at Shoemaker Green) with its skyline views of Philadelphia. This event directly supports writing camp scholarships for students and community-based writing programs. Click here to view photos from 2016.
The Marci Resnick Teacher Fund awards are made in the memory of Marci Resnick, a longtime elementary school teacher, who was also director of the Philadelphia Writing Project and Associate Director of National Programs for the National Writing Project. Through her love of children, her passion for literacy and the arts, and her commitment to teacher networks, she brought excitement about learning to her students, her colleagues in Philadelphia, and thousands of teachers throughout the country. The Marci Resnick Teacher Fund was created to honor her life and work. Each year up to four teachers receive $500.00 to enhance their teaching practice and their work as teacher-leaders.
