2024 Summer Institute

Location: CUE Commons (Posvar Hall 4303)
Wesley W. Posvar Hall, 230 South Bouquet Street, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania 15260

We are pleased to offer a restorative and explorative four-week seminar for educators. If you are a classroom teacher, community educator, or education leader looking to have dedicated time for writing, improve your practice, and/or influence the writing culture in your school or organization, the WPWP Summer Institute is for you!

During the four weeks, educators (grade levels K to college, across all disciplines and communities) develop their personal and professional writing, explore new writing strategies, consider curriculum, and deepen inquiry connected to writing as a tool for education equity, access, and social justice. Together, we investigate best practices in writing and literacy instruction through shared demonstrations of practice, readings, and intentional focus on our writing and reading processes.

Please share the application and nomination form with educators and leaders. We will accept applications and nominations through May 1, 2024. If you have any questions, please email
