About the McNeill Writing Program

The McNeill Writing Program exists to support students’ growth as readers, writers, and, in an increasingly online age, composers in multimedia. Reading and writing are powerful practices for learning about and influencing the world around us, and the program helps students leverage that power for their own purposes.
