Writing Teachers Write: Opportunities for both BAWP TCs and the Greater Community

Teacher Voices (Open to the Public) 

Every teacher knows what it means to be in conversation with another teacher – to discover new ideas, to be inspired to reach higher, to be reassured that our experiments and innovations are not in vain. Teacher Voices is an online space designated for classroom stories, reflections, inquiries, and eyewitness accounts written by teachers for teachers.

We invite you to contribute to a body of work portraying the eye-opening, thought-provoking, and challenging stories and moments that happen in your classroom.

Visit the Teacher Voices page to find out more and learn how to submit a piece for publication. 

Virtual BAWP Writing Retreat: Writing Our Practice, Writing Our Lives (Open to the Public)

Saturday, April 17, 2021 from 9:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.

Submit your interest!

2020 brought many challenges and changes to our personal and
professional lives. BAWP invites you to take a break from these
challenges to tell your stories, to write the poem that has been lingering
in the back of your mind, or to write as a professional about your
teaching and your students. The purpose of this retreat is to support
participants with inspirational prompts, dedicated time to write, and
immediate feedback from published BAWP authors. We’ll end our day
together with an Author’s Chair and invitations to continue engaging
with other writers as we prepare our manuscripts for potential

Digital Paper (Submissions from BAWP TCs Only)

Digital Paper is an online magazine published by the Bay Area Writing Project (BAWP). Its contributors are BAWP Teacher Consultants, local educators who completed  the BAWP Invitational Summer Institute in the Teaching of Writing. The audience of this eZine is anyone interested in good reading, writing, viewing, and listening.

We are dedicated to the premise that in order to be effective teachers of the arts we must also slide behind typewriters, pick up chalk, strap on guitars, start the camera rolling, reach for the brush…and pursue the arts ourselves, with passionate abandon, tumbling head over heels into the next moment.

What you have before you is something we call an eZine. It contains poems, stories, essays, paintings and more. It is digital. It has audio tracks. It has links. It provides opportunities for feedback and interaction with the writers and artists. Please feed them whenever possible.
