The National Writing Project (NWP) is committed to your right to privacy. To that end, NWP has adopted the following privacy policies with regard to the online collection of personal information.

Personal information is collected from certain users, including site administrators and site participants, in order to facilitate the workflows and operations provided by the Website. For site administrators, we collect name and email address, along with other non-personal information. For participants, we collect a displayed username, which the Member or a site administrator can arbitrarily define—meaning, it would only contain personal information (such as the user’s name) if the user chose to define it as such.

Signing up to participate at the Website requires a name and email address. Site administrators control whether or not a registrant is allowed access to publish at the site. Member profiles are only viewable to other members who are logged in to the site.

The Website uses cookies as a method of authentication and session management. To help improve the user experience of the Website and troubleshoot potential problems, the Website maintains a log of both user-level and system-level activity, the details of which may increase or decrease depending on whether or not a current issue is being investigated.

This site may contain links to other independently run Websites outside the “” domain. The National Writing Project is not responsible for the security and privacy practices or content of these external Websites.

Use of this Website constitutes acknowledgment and agreement of this privacy policy. We reserve the right to change all or part of this privacy policy at any time. Changes will be posted and your use of the Website after such changes constitutes acceptance of the updated privacy policy.
