San Jose Area Writing Project (SJAWP)


Led by Dr. Jonathan Lovell, Director, and a site governance team made up of associate directors, a program manager, and administrative assistants, the San Jose Area Writing Project (SJAWP) runs school-year and summer programs on the teaching of writing, along with school-year and summer writing programs for 3rd to 12th grade students.

The SJAWP is a California Subject Matter Project, an affiliate of the National Writing Project and the California Writing Project. We are a non-profit organization of, by, and for teachers dedicated to improving the teaching and uses of writing at all grade levels (K-16) and in all disciplines.

Working from the belief that a cadre of potentially effective teacher-leaders already exist in any given region of the country, the SJAWP offers a summer program that brings these K-college teacher together to learn from one another over the space of a 4 1/2 week Intensive Summer Institute (ISI).

Tuition discounts available for financial need. Please check online for details.
