2016 Invitational Summer Institute
(April 30 and June 6-30)
The Invitational Summer Institute begins with a "writing marathon" in April, then continues in June with four weeks of intensive reading, writing, and small-group work focused on helping participants use writing more effectively in their classrooms. An application and an interview are required, but participants will earn six hours of graduate credit and gain valuable experience as they become "Teacher Consultants" as part of the National Writing Project's network of teachers. The Institute is for teachers from ALL disciplines and ALL grade levels, and tuition, fees, and materials are provided by the LWP. Applications accepted through the end of March; click here to apply.
The 2016 Young Writers Camp (YWC) is scheduled for June 13-23, Mondays through Thursdays. This year we are offering a two-week program for children in grades three through eight who want to improve their writing skills. There will be guest authors to conduct writing workshops and guest teachers infusing play into writing. Applications accepted beginning in January 2016.
