Writing Teachers Write

A monthly literary reading series featuring Bay Area Writing Project Teacher Consultants and other local writers

Every Second Sunday of the Month (January 11th, February 8th, and March 8th)

Expressions Gallery – 2035 Ashby Avenue at Adeline in Berkeley (very close to Ashby BART)


Sunday, January 11, 2015  –  3:00-4:30 p.m.

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.

Come a bit early and sign up for Open Mic.

(Teacher Consultants Only )

For long-time consultants and presenters, we want to the PCN to be a place for you to try out a new presentation, or refine one you’ve already developed. For TCs who have not yet had a chance to present, we’d like the PCN to be an opportunity for you to further develop ideas and presentations put forth at your summer institute. For all of us, the collegial support at the center of the PCN is intended to help us work confidently with colleagues as we support continued growth as teachers of writing and teachers of content such as history and science.
