The mission of the Morehead Writing Project (MWP) is to improve student writing achievement by improving the teaching of writing in Eastern Kentucky schools.

Founded in 1986, MWP is a federally- and state-funded professional development program whose goal is to help Eastern Kentucky educators become better writers and writing teachers. We are affiliated with the National Writing Project, the Kentucky Writing Project, the Kentucky Department of Education, and Morehead State University.

It should come as no surprise that Morehead Writing Project Teacher Leaders are rock stars who are in demand!

Of course, this means that we sometimes lose track of our Teacher Leaders as they change positions and districts. While this can mean a lovely surprise when we meet old friends in unexpected places, it can also lead to lost connections and we hate for that to happen. 

So please let us know when you relocate -- even if the news may seem too old to you it might not be to us!
