Welcome to the San Antonio Writing Project, a new part of the 200+ site network of the National Writing Project, hosted by The University of Texas at San Antonio. SAWP and its eleven sister sites in Texas (see NWP-TX) are dedicated to the improvement of the teaching of writing in Texas classrooms K-college.
