Read-and-Write-a-thon: May 19, 2012

With a small core staff, hundreds of skilled community volunteers, and the avid support of school administrators and educators, since 2001 WriterCoach Connection has brought one-on-one writing support to thousands of middle- and high-school students at all skill levels.

Working with WriterCoach Connection -- a program of the Community Alliance for Learning -- volunteers give students the confidence they need to think critically and write clearly.

This year more than 500 coaches are working with some 2,000 students in Berkeley, Oakland, El Cerrito, and Albany, and plans are underway to expand the program into Richmond next year.

To ensure our continued success, and to celebrate the words we love, WriterCoach Connection held our 4th annual

Non-stop poetry, prose, drama, and fiction shared the stage for 10 consecutive hours as an ever-changing cast of writing coaches and students read and listened to the stories and ideas that give life and light to our community.
