The Central Utah Writing Project (CUWP) is a community of K-12 teachers across all content areas who are passionate about writing, teaching, and learning. This summer, CUWP offers two professional development opportunities to re-invigorate your writing instruction and reconnect with your writer self.

CUWP Invitational Summer Institute

Summer Institute (SI) is an immersive three-week writing and teaching development experience; it is the cornerstone of CUWP. Teacher participants across K-12 contexts are selected by invitation after an application and interview process. They become CUWP Fellows upon completion of SI.
