Minnesota Writing Project

The Minnesota Writing Project aims to improve K–college literacy in Minnesota. Housed within the Center for Writing at the University of Minnesota–Twin Cities, MWP is a local site of the National Writing Project, which "focuses the knowledge, expertise, and leadership of our nation's educators on sustained efforts to improve writing and learning for all learners."

The Minnesota Writing Project’s 2019–20 Workshop Series features four events for teachers from all content areas, grades, and levels of experience to think and learn together with expert educators. We will share a variety of perspectives from research and practicing teachers for your consideration, and offer a space to dialogue about the work involved in taking up various aspects of teaching. Click here for more details.
