The Bay Area Writing Project (BAWP) is a collaborative program between the University of California at Berkeley and Bay Area schools, dedicated to improving writing and the teaching of writing at all grade levels and in all disciplines. One of the founding principles of BAWP suggests that the best teachers of writing also write themselves. This monthly reading is a lively and unique place to hear the powerful voices of teachers and other writers in our rich and varied Bay Area communities.
Open Mic follows as time permits. Sign up before reading begins.
