Maryland Writing Project (MWP), a site of National Writing Project, is dedicated to strengthening student writing by providing professional development for classroom teachers and expanding teachers’ leadership opportunities.


The Maryland Writing Project is a professional learning community that builds the knowledge, practice, and leadership of Maryland’s educators to improve writing and learning for all Maryland students. Our mission is to build a network of knowledgeable teachers who are committed to high-quality writing instruction, prepared to share their knowledge with colleagues, and engaged in continually improving their own practice and that of their colleagues.
