Southern Louisiana Writing Project combined elements from the Invitational Summer Institute with their experience as sponsors of writing marathons to create “Writing in Good Company in New Orleans,” a SEED-funded Advanced Institute that attracted 60 participants. With the historic Gallier House in the French Quarter as their meeting place, a leadership team of SLWP teacher consultants created a new website, blog, Facebook presence, and online registration for the event and planned a flexible schedule of guest speakers, workshops and other activities that gave participants, about half of them National Writing Project teacher consultants from about a dozen states, a chance to experience New Orleans as writers.
