LSU Writing Project
The Louisiana State University Writing Project (LSU WP) promotes the exploration of writing, writing research, and how to share writing best practice among educators (established 1985). The goal of the Louisiana State University Writing Project is to improve the teaching of writing and ultimately, help Louisiana students become accomplished writers and learners. Through professional development and outreach, the project serves a ten parish network of districts and schools in the southern part of the state.
LSU Writing Project workshops and professional development are tailored to provide a variety of writing-specific learning opportunities for administrators, educators, students, staff, and faculty.
Configurations include entire staff, departments, or customized groups of educators.
