Deadline Looms

Deadline for Summer Invitational Institute - March 1, 2008
Institute runs from June 26 - July 24, 2008

The Summer Invitational Institute, the core of the work we do at the Eastern Michigan Writing project, officially closes applications on March 1. Admittedly this “deadline” has had a life of its own in the past, but it’s only fair to warn our prospects that we already have a number of applications from the early and the eager, and we have a fixed number (15) we can subsidize under our current grant.

You can still get brochures if it would help your recruiting. Download the application or contact Sarah Soebbing to receive them by surface mail. We will also have an “open topic” meeting for “Tap into Writing” at the “Drowsy Parrot” in Saline (February 21), which would be a great time to talk about the Invitational or any program of interest to you and your colleagues. Don’t forget to RSVP on this one, so we know if we have a viable group.

The Summer Invitational Institute returns to the luxurious Student Center this summer, running concurrently with many of our summer programs, including “Inkstains” (writing camp, July 7-18), the Teacher Research Institute (July 14-18), and the Advanced Writing Institute (July 21-29).
