There’s still time to join us for the Missouri Writing Project Summer Institute! Though the Institute will take place virtually this year, it will have the same focus on building a community of folks who write together, demonstrate ways to teach with writing, and engage in inquiry around writing instruction. It’s sure to be a welcome escape from a stressful world. Please see this flyer for more information and contact Christy Goldsmith (GoldsmithC@missouri.edu) if you’re interested! The final deadline to join the Summer Institute is June 1.
As a Missouri Writing Projects Network, some exciting things are happening as well.

Each Thursday, Writing Project folks from across the state will participate in a Write On! ZOOM call. This is a forum to ask questions and stay grounded by writing and reflecting together.
Join the MWPN Write On! zoom call on Thursday, 4/2, 10am (Join URL: https://zoom.us/j/105219116 ). A good place to connect with teachers working together through this uncertain time.
We encourage you to consider joining these sessions as we adjust to ongoing changes. The links will be updated on the MWPN website and on DESE's Edmodo page. (If you have not joined, you can request to do so by emailing Debbie Jameson: email@example.com.)
Missouri Writing Project
Based at the University of Missouri in Columbia, MO and comprised of area teachers who have completed our Summer Institute, our goal is to support teachers and students in writing and literacy across contexts, grade levels, and content areas through collaborative PD.
