The Inland Area Writing Project is a university-anchored, teacher-centered, professional development organization. Hosted by the University Writing Program at the University of California, Riverside, the IAWP is a member of a state (California Writing Project) and a national network (National Writing Project) of writing projects. We have a history of proven success since the late 1970s, and we are dedicated to improving writing and learning in the schools of the Inland Area.

To best serve teachers of writing at all levels and across all disciplines, from the primary grades up through the first two years of higher education, the IAWP offers opportunities for high-quality, research-based, and classroom-tested professional development and support for educators both at their schools and districts and at UCR.
