How to Join MWP

Would you like to improve your writing and learn more about the teaching of writing? Do you see yourself as a teacher of teachers…or would you like to be?

Join the Maine Writing Project
and earn Graduate Credits!

We are an association of 300 educators from across the state of Maine. Each year educators join our ranks by participating in our annual institute.  The Annual Institute is an opportunity to look closely at your own writing and student writing, to talk with colleagues about issues and ideas in the teaching of writing, to work toward becoming teacher leaders, and to share classroom practices or activities.  Fellows who complete the annual institute become teacher-consultants (TCs) of the Maine and National Writing Projects.

The Writing Project Institute includes two, three-credit graduate courses from the University of Maine:

~~2018 Dates: Erl 545 = January 17-May 11, 2018 ~~ ERL 546 = July 2-3 and 9-14, 2018 ~~
