CWP II and III: Those of you who have already completed a CWP I summer workshop and who have a burning question about writing that you would like to study can sign up for any of the sites listed under Summer Courses. Instructors will work individually with you to design a two-week exploration of writing and writing instruction to meet your individual needs that goes beyond your introductory experience in CWP I. CWP II and III offer participants the opportunity for independent study on a topic of interest while still maintaining the collegiality of peers. During the professional studies section of the day, CWP II and III participants delve into a topic of their choice. During writing time, they work with CWP colleagues. Additional graduate credit (4 semester hours) is available from UCD for these advanced level courses.
Although a single person from your school or department can attend, CWP strongly believes that having a team of teachers take part in an institute leads to quicker, more effective, and longer lasting implementation of good writing practices.
