The Illinois Writing Project (IWP) provides professional development on teaching writing, reading, and the application of both skills for learning across the curriculum and across whole schools.

Affiliated with the National Writing Project and housed at National-Louis University, with co-directors including NEIU's Dr. Katy Smith, the IWP serves Chicago and all of northern Illinois.
