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.

Open Programs – Blog to Learn

In this workshop, you will get all the tools you need to develop an active blog about a burning question from your professional or personal life. Using writing activities that translate directly to 2nd-12th grade classrooms, we will generate ideas, outline, draft, revise and publish a series of blog posts. Experienced bloggers will get the impetus to revitalize their current blogs and/or generate ideas for new ones, while novice bloggers will depart with a live blog on WordPress.com, and a working knowledge of basic free blogging. If you’d like to learn how to use blogging to create energy, movement and community in your classroom and life around a topic of deep interest, Blog to Learn is the workshop for you!

Teen Camp – Rebellious Writing @ UC Berkeley

We will play with drama, spoken word, creative nonfiction, conceptual art, satire, and essay to unleash the social critic in us all.

This is a class for opinionated risk-takers who aren’t afraid to tell it like they see it. Come find your people here. Course fee includes technology costs.
