BAWP LEADERSHIP TRANSITION!  As of June 30th, Dr. Greta Vollmer will be leaving the position of Director to return to her full-time job as professor at Sonoma State University. The new Director will be announced shortly.

The Bay Area WritiNWP40Anni0129ng Project (BAWP), housed in the Graduate School of Education, is a collaborative program between University of California, Berkeley and Bay Area schools. Since 1974, BAWP has been a vital resource for teachers and schools in the Bay Area, not only in the teaching of writing but also as a model of professional development, teacher leadership and reform. Firmly rooted in the belief that teachers are the best teachers of teachers, BAWP offers workshops for teachers, taught by teachers, throughout the school year and each summer, serving hundreds of teachers and their students each year.

During its 40 years, BAWP has expanded to offer workshops for young writers in grades 4-9, for pre-service teachers, for teachers as writers and for after school program leaders. As a teacher-led organization, BAWP continues to respond to the needs of teachers in the Bay Area and the needs of their students.

BAWP’s current director is Dr. Greta Vollmer.
