A monthly literary reading series featuring Bay Area Writing Project Teacher Consultants and other local writers
2035 Ashby Avenue at Adeline in Berkeley (very close to Ashby BART)
Sunday, January 11, 2015 – 3:00-4:30 p.m.
Joan Wilcox, Bay Area Writing Project (BAWP) Teacher Consultant, began writing in a BAWP workshop while a teacher at Jefferson Elementary (OUSD). She attended BAWP’s Summer Institute and joined a poetry writing group with other BAWP teacher writers. Joan continues to teach and share her poetry with students she teaches.
Antoinette Constable, a child in France during WWII, has been published widely: four chapters of her novel; many poems; and two pieces in Wanderers in Paris, which won a gold medal at London’s Book Fair, a silver in Paris. Finishing Line Press published her chapbook, The Lasting War, in 2014.
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.
Read our literary journal, Digital Paper, on BAWP’s website at bayareawritingproject.org.
Light refreshments will be served.
