About EDWI: The Emerging Diné Writers' Institute (EDWI) is a creative writing summer program for students, writers, educators, and the general public. Participants will work with acclaimed Diné writers and non-Diné visiting writers in various genres of creative writing in a supportive and close-knit community. EDWI also reaffirms and reconnects Diné writers with ancestral Diné stories.

What is a Ha'a'aahdę́ę́' Writing Fellow?
A group of Diné writers in various stages of their writing journey are accepted every summer to study with Diné Writing Faculty in various genres. These students are designated as Ha'a'aahdę́ę́' Writing Fellows. Any Diné folks interested in creative writing are eligible to apply for these fellowships. 

**Important Note: While we especially focus on Diné (Navajo) writers, there is also a public portion of the agenda that everyone is invited to. So tell your friends, neighbors, classmates, acquaintances, or whoever you think would benefit from EDWI!**

Please visit edwi.navajotech.edu for more information or email emergingdinewriters@navajotech.edu.
