Created in 1977, the Iowa Writing Project (IWP) offers professional growth opportunities for Iowa teachers and advocates exemplary teaching of writing and use of writing for learning in Iowa schools. IWP is managed by a Steering Committee of five members under policies developed by an Advisory Board of representatives educators from across the state. Summer institutes/workshops and self-study seminars during the school year are major project instruments.
IWP focuses on Iowa educators, K-college, extending across the state a vision of writing and a consistent approach to the teaching of writing. The Project cooperates with compatible efforts in other states and is an active member of the National Writing Project network.
