Who are we?

The Central California Writing Project is a professional development organization affiliated with the National Writing Project and California Writing Project.  Our extensive network of teacher-consultants are dedicated to improving the teaching of writing in Santa Cruz, San Benito and Monterey Counties through a range of diverse professional learning experiences for teachers of all levels.

What do we do?

The Central California Writing Project promotes exemplary instruction of writing in every classroom.  We offer a variety of programs and professional learning opportunities that support ongoing conversations among educators– in different school contexts– and with a diversity of students at all levels—from kindergarten through university—on the theory and practice of teaching writing.

Why are we important?

The Central California Writing Project believes that teachers deserve to participate in high-quality educational experiences that are teacher-driven and context-relevant; designed to suit the needs of teachers’ individual students, classrooms and schools. Our organization can support you in designing or participating in professional learning that best suits your unique needs and goals.
