Life is a work in progress.
Every day consists of little tests; little opportunities for us to reshape ourselves and to redefine what it means to be great. We rise up, to meet each new day, to eradicate the obstacles that bind us, and to rectify the mistakes of yesterday with the understanding that consistent revision is what truly makes us. In those moments of reform, where we seek transformation, that is where growth happens.
At the Tampa Bay Area Writing Project, we seize those little moments each and every day, because we know that small victories elicit monumental change. We are a dedicated society of educators devoted to professional development through writing and literacy because communication is a life skill that never loses its value. At TBAWP, our aim is two-fold: to provide instructors with the tools necessary to sculpt young writers and, in turn, to forge lifelong writers from out school systems
Since its establishment in 1998, TBAWP has impacted the literacy practices of thousands of teachers and students. TBAWP by the numbers:
