Teacher-Writers Workshop

Spring Writing Workshop!

Designed to:

  • invigorate your writing – respond to prompts across several genres

  • refine your instruction – explore strategies to promote fluency

  • enrich your collegial circle – learn about writing programs throughout the Bay Area and form small groups to coach and encourage

  • reflect, redirect, renew – enjoy the energy and inspiration BAWP offers

Both classes facilitated by BAWP TC Meredith Pike-Baky and held at Redwood High School in Larkspur, conveniently located off 101 and strategically situated at the hub of three independent bookstores (!)

“…a wonderfully enriching week of writing and thinking on the teaching of writing!”

“…a wealth of ideas to work from in designing a great writing program…”

“…extremely useful, fulfilling and renewing processes for teachers…”

WriteEasy on Meet Up! See who else is coming. 
Join us to write and share, to warm ourselves with words with teachers and writers. We’ll offer prompts, but you are always free to write what you want and need to write.
Bring your pen, your computer, a prompt to share and get your writing on.

Easy to get to from North, South, East and West. Plenty of street parking. Good coffee, tea and food at Mudrakers!

Hope to see you there,

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)

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.
