Advanced Institute Theme: That Teaching Vibe

Days/Times: June 8th-12th, 2020. Monday through Friday from 9AM to 4PM (though only portions of this time will be synchronous)

The Denver Writing Project is happy to offer all of our youth writing opportunites and the Advanced Institute FREE of charge during these trying times. We will operate at a loss, but serving teachers of writing and youth writers remains vital to our collective future. To that end, any donation is greatly appreciated.

*If making a donation please make sure to write "For the Denver Writing Project" in the Comments box.
