Write What You Know

a creative writing workshop for teachers

Have a lot to say about your day-to-day work? Tired of hearing everyone else talk about what teachers do or don’t do? Have you collected hundreds and thousands of individual stories of heartbreaking hope or pain in your time in the classroom? Ever silence your deepest thoughts about yourself, students, your profession?In four Saturday workshops, we will give ourselves permission to get it all down, the good, the bad and the beautiful, in a safe, intimate and confidential setting.  Come get your pen or keypad going in the comfort of Marty’s cozy home.We will use the AWA method, writing to suggested prompts, giving positive feedback, and creating the confidential space to write it like it is. Limited to 6 people, this workshop is a “get your feet wet” introduction to a Bay Area Writing Project course you might be interested in: Blog What You Know: Teachers Write About Their Work, co-taught by Greta Vollmer, Bay Area Writing Project Director, and Marty Williams, and offered in spring 2015.
