Welcome! The Mississippi Writing Thinking Institute (MWTI) aims to improve writing and learning in Mississippi school districts. Established in 1985 through the National Writing Project, the institute seeks to promote exemplary instruction of writing and transform education for students and teachers in the state through professional development. We believe that access to high-quality educational experiences are a basic right of all learners and a cornerstone of equity. MWTI offers high quality professional development that blends best practices and theory, research-based, sustained programs aligned with state and national standards and outstanding teacher mentors who serve as teachers of their colleagues.
