Prairie Lands Writing Project is Northwest Missouri's only National Writing Project site. We deliver a plethora of programs year-round to teachers and youth, from teacher learning communities, writing groups and retreats, in-services, youth writing camps, to advanced institutes. We strive to improve student writing and literacy skills provide professional development opportunities for teachers.
View excerpts of writings from the two writing marathons of the institute. Teachers wrote in various places around St. Joseph, ranging from familiar old haunts like Pony Espresso to experimental new marathon stops like the License Office.
