Coastal Bend Writing Project


To work with local teachers and schools to improve writing and the teaching of writing in the Coastal Bend area.

CBWP is local--writing experts are here and dedicated to writing and education in the Coastal Bend.


We believe that:

  • Writing is essential to success in school and the workplace
  • The best teachers of writing are writers themselves
  • Teachers are the experts on effective classroom practice
  • A supportive community of teachers working together is the best vehicle for meaningful educational change.

The Coastal Bend Writing Project is the local site affiliate of the National Writing Project, the nation's premier professional development organization for teachers.
