Each summer, the Denver Writing Project offers a week-long Advanced Institute for educators to develop their own writing and work on becoming better teachers of writing.
Teachers from all disciplines and all grade levels are welcome to join us for a week committed to themselves and each other as we continue to develop our skills as teachers/writers. During the week we’ll write, study effective practices in the teaching of writing and attend short seminars offered by professional writers from our area.
REGISTRATION: At this time it is unclear whether we will offer the Advanced Institute remotely, in-person, or via a hybrid model. Regardless of our means of delivery the dates and times below will not change. Additionally, the 2021 Advanced Institute will be free of charge regardless how it is delivered. As soon as we have direction from the University of Colorado Denver and the Auraria Higher Education Center concerning how we may offer the Advanced Insitute in the Summer of 2021, we will update this page and open registration.
Days/Times: June 7th-11th, 2021. Monday through Friday from 9AM to 4PM
Demonstrations from professional writers and educators (in partnership with the Invitational Summer Institute).
The chance to write and publish your personal statement of belief about teaching.

We hope you'll join us!
The DWP will provide a certificate for completion of 30 hours of professional development.
Please feel free to invite colleagues and friends to attend the Advanced Institute. You don't have to be an alumni of the Invitational Summer Institute to partake in this week-long writing and professional development opportunity.
