The Oregon Writing Project is committed to supporting Southern Oregon University's mission as a regionally engaged learning community. The Oregon Writing Project welcomes and fosters a diverse community of teachers at all stages of their careers who are passionate about teaching writing. Together we share writing and teaching practices in celebration of learning, growing, and leading. 


OWP at SOU is one of four Writing Project sites on university campuses in Oregon, and serves the southwest area of the state. We are affiliated with the National Writing Project. For more than twenty years, the National Writing Project has promoted and developed teacher-presenters, teacher-consultants, and teacher-leaders all across the United States.

These principles guide our work:

  • Writing is fundamental to learning in all disciplines.
  • Effective teachers of writing regularly writethemselves.
  • Teachers learn best from other successful teachers.
  • Universities, districts, and schools deepen their work through collaboration.
Join us for an institute, a workshop, a class, or an informal gathering!
