The National Writing Project in New Hampshire  is involved in several publications, including the celebrated anthologies of teacher writing collected by the Plymouth Writers Group and published semi-annually. In a review of the first anthology, Writes of Passage, published in the fall of 1996, Rebecca Rule writes, “the writing is consistently strong, thought-provoking and unpretentious… This is a fine collection of work about growing up, or just plain growing—and though the writers must be teachers, readers from all walks of life will be engaged by what these teachers have to say and how well they say it.” (Concord Monitor)

The NWPNH  also publishes Middle/High School Voices, an anthology of writing by NH middle and high school students, and Summer Anthologies of writing by NWPNH summer institute participants.
