An integral part of the Center for Community Writing, the Saginaw Bay Writing Project (SBWP) works to promote the teaching of writing throughout the Mid-Michigan area. The SBWP offers professional development where teachers learn best practices in teaching writing and grow as writers themselves. As a National Writing Project site, we provide outreach to area schools, offer a variety of workshops and summer institutes on best practices in teaching writing, and sponsor local writing retreats for area teachers. Here at the SBWP, we develop a network of effective teachers who share their successes, foster a community of teachers who are also writers, encourage personal and professional growth in the teaching of writing, and improve the writing of Michigan students at all levels.
