Everyone can write.
Writing can be taught.
Teachers who write are the best teachers of writing.
As teachers belonging to one of the 200+ sites of the National Writing Project, we practice these principles. We are a network of teachers of all grades K-college of all subjects, who write, teach writing and improve the teaching of writing through summer institutes, teacher research, and professional development.
A primary mission of the EMWP is to offer high-quality, highly-practical inservice offerings to teachers and to area schools. EMWP offers many opportunities for useful and relevant professional development opportunities for schools and for individual teachers.
We extend these practices to families through our Family Literacy Initiative and to K-12 students through our summer writing camp Inkstains.
Our signature offering is the four-week Summer Invitational Institute, where teachers come together in a highly-focused, life-changing workshop to share their best methods of teaching and learn even more through individualized research.
