Family Literacy

Because parents are their children’s first and most important teachers, EMWP wants to support parents in their efforts to create an environment at home that fosters a love for reading and writing and helps their children and teens become confident, skillful writers. Through the Family Literacy Initiative, we offer workshops at different levels: for elementary students and their families, for middle school parents, and for high school teens and their parents or guardians.

For more information about attending one of these workshops or scheduling a parent or family workshop at your local library or school, please contact Kimberly Pavlock, EMWP Youth and Family Literacy Coordinator at

Price for all workshops (except the Family Writing Project Workshop series) is $450 for a 90-minute session. The four-session Family Writing Project costs $1700.  If you are a non-profit organization or interested in bundling workshops, please contact Kim Pavlock at for special pricing.
