Writing Teachers Write

A monthly literary reading series featuring Bay Area Writing Project Teacher Consultants and other local writers reading from their own work. (Open to the Public)

Expressions Gallery  3:00-4:30 p.m.

2035 Ashby Avenue @ Adeline in Berkeley (very close to Ashby BART)

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.

Light refreshments will be served. We hope you will join us.
Please contact Judy Bebelaar at judy@judybebelaar.com or 510-845-5430 with any questions.

August 10th – 13th

Open Programs – Research and Writing in a Digital World

Join us for this exciting four-day workshop to explore how the age-old research based writing project can be augmented, modified and redefined using digital tools. In four half-day sessions participants will learn about and experiment with digital tools and platforms that will facilitate the transition to writing in digital spaces. Participants will also explore best practices for conducting online research with students, and will engage in the writing process for a digital research-based writing project. Bring your own device(s) for this excellent workshop on preparing students for researching and writing in the digital age.

Writing Group for Teachers (Open to the Public)

Mudraker’s Cafe 4:00-6:00 p.m. 2801 Telegraph Ave at Stuart in Berkeley, CA

Join us to write, share, chat, eat, drink and warm ourselves with words and with other teachers and writers. We’ll offer prompts, but you are always free to write what you want and need to write. We use the Amherst Writers and Artists response guidelines to give feedback to our fresh, unedited work.

Bring your pen, your computer, a prompt to share and get your writing on!
