Checks should be made out to the Western PA Writing Project and SENT to the University of Pittsburgh School of Education, 5518 WWPH, 230 S. Bouquet St., Pittsburgh, PA 15260

• Please note: checks and registration applications are collected on a weekly basis; the Director is not in the Writing Project office full time, so we ask for your patience regarding the timing of check receipts. Please know that we have your information once the registration is submitted.

• The Institute Director will send out Orientation Letters for all grades shortly before the Institute begins.

• If you have a pressing concern and require a quick response, please email the Institute Director at If you have an immediate request, please call the Institute Director at 412.302.3534.
