Red Cedar Writing Project (RCWP) supports a cohort of Teacher-Consultants (TCs) who will visit Michigan school districts and facilitate workshops on a number of aspects that relate to writing and literacy. These workshops have been highly rated for the past 20+ years and can be custom designed to meet the professional development needs / goals of your school or district.

For more information on workshops and in-service opportunities, pricing, and how we can tailor an in-service to meet the needs of your school and staff, contact RCWP Director Trixie Smith or one of our Co-Directors.



Book studies, writing groups, early release series, and professional learning communities are all included in our retinue of professional development services.


We tailor our in-service to meet your needs, and are prepared to offer sessions across a range of scopes, including school-wide, department-level, and grade-specific.


From writing assessment and curriculum development to emergent literacy and technology-based teaching, we offer guidance on an array of topics.
