Conducting a Personal IWE

This section contains detailed directions for setting up a Personal IWE. Vidcasts and handouts useful for a potential three-day event cover a variety of writing-related topics. For each topic, there is a vidcast and a number of handouts. Writers can view the vidcasts and read through the handouts and then apply what they have learned to their own writing. We suggest starting with the handout entitled “Conducting a Personal Intensive Writing Experience (IWE).” This will provide details for structuring time and offers a schedule for the order of topics across a multi-day event.
