The Spartanbugr Writing Project is a professional development organization committed to 
the mission of improving writing and the teaching of writing by providing services and 
resources to the teachers, students, schools and school districts in our service area. 
Founded in 1982, the Spartanburg Writing Project is a collaborative effort of Spartanburg 
County School Districts 1-7, the Union County School District, and the University of South 
Carolina Upstate. Unlike other programs in education which have  a 3-5 year life span, SWP 
is 28 years strong. We provide professional development programs offering: research-based 
methods in the teaching of writing, standards-aligned professional development; intensive 
support for improving student achievement and preparing students for standardized tests, 
and assessment-driven designs for comprehensive, effective reading and writing curriculums.
