    The Central Virginia Writing Project (CVWP), one of over 200 sites of the National Writing Project, provides support for educators across Central Virginia, early childhood through university, and across all disciplines. We offer a dual focus on both the importance of the teacher as writer and students as writers across the curriculum.

    CVWP provides a variety of professional development opportunities across the state where teachers teach teachers effective practices that enhance student writing and learning. We share the National Writing Project's vision of empowering teacher-leaders to be change agents.

    The CVWP is organized and run by a leadership team composed of educational professionals in our region.
