The institute offers participants a rich opportunity to grow as a writer and as a teacher of writing.  We are confident that participation in the institute will become a pivotal experience in one’s professional life.

Through the institute, participants will earn six hours of either English or Education graduate credit. The cost of the credit will be at the UMSL summer graduate credit rate. Pending grant funding, a scholarship may be awarded to successful candidates who apply by the stated deadline. Later applicants may or may not be eligible for stipends. There is also an expectation that summer fellows will attend two “renewal” meetings during the following school year. The dates and times for those meetings will be determined by the group.

Locations: Monday, Wednesday, and Fridays--UMSL campus; Tuesdays and Thursdays--Harris-Stowe State University campus.
Instructors: Tracy Brosch, GWP Technology Liaison/Assistant Director - Advocacy & Outreach and Sioux Roslawski, Assistant Director- Teachers as Writers
