The Indiana Writing Projectwas awarded a $15,000 grant titled “2017-2018 SEED Invitational Leadership Institute to Invest in Developing New Teacher Leaders.” The money from this grant will be used to support summer programming for teachers.
The Indiana Writing Project was also thrilled to send two local teachers to Washington D.C. in March for the National Writing Project’s Spring Meeting. In their time in D.C., teachers Jeri Tarvin and Katrina Gibson met with legislators to increase awareness about the work of NWP/IWP. They shared student writing and examples of professional development happening at our site.
Since this year’s theme is “Celebrating Variety,” those involved in Women’s Week hope to support all women across all intersections by addressing the inequalities suffered due to race, gender, class, sexuality, age, and ethnicity.

This past July, Midwest Writers Workshop (MWW) gathered for their annual conference at Ball State University. Through the help of a grant from the Discovery Group, many Ball State students had the pleasure of attending this conference as scholarship winners and paid interns. Brittany Means, one of the attending students, received the award for best poetry manuscript, as well as for best overall manuscript and a $200 cash award!
