Coalition for Community Writing

The Coalition for Community Writing (CCW) is an organization of educators, scholars, writers, students, artists, and community change makers who believe in the transformative potential of coalition building through writing toward social change. CCW provides resources, consultation, and partnership to our members, as well as in-person and virtual gatherings, such as the biennial Conference on Community Writing. CCW supports community writing through research and publication in our affiliated journals, Community Literacy Journal and Reflections: Community-Engaged Writing and Rhetoric, and also encourages community-engaged teaching through consultation and mentorship, creative works and public arts, direct programming, and relationship building across communities. CCW is reimagining how writing is used as a tool for public awareness and expression, for dialogue across differences, and for community and coalition building.
