The Indiana Writing Project
The Indiana Writing Project (IWP) is an organization committed to promoting the best possible writing instruction in Indiana's elementary, secondary, and post-secondary schools. The Project is administered through Ball State University's English Department and funded through the generous support of Ball State and the National Writing Project. The Project has been recognized by the Indiana state legislature for our work in helping teachers improve student performance in writing. All IWP programs are led by our Teacher Consultants, local teachers who have completed our intensive leadership institute.
