We’ll meet in the lobby first to distribute entrance tickets, then proceed to a lecture room to write into the day and practice some activities.

Teachers from any content area or any level of schooling can apply to the Denver Writing Project Summer Institute. The 2015 Summer Institute meets on weekdays from Monday, June 8 through Friday, June 26 on the Auraria Campus in Denver. Participants can take the Summer Institute for 0-6 English graduate credits that can apply toward an M.A. in English or Education at the University of Colorado Denver. Participants will receive a $300 stipend to partially offset the cost associated with participating (parking, gas, mileage, food, printing/copying, etc.). We will also provide all books needed for the institute (usually one professional text and one writing craft book).
