Move your writing projects along this summer! Join the "write-on-site" group that meets in the Faculty Development Office every Wednesday from 9 to 11 a.m.

What does it mean to write on site? The term was coined by Kerry Ann Rockquemore (president and CEO of the National Center for Faculty Development and Diversity) and describes people coming together to work on their particular projects for two hours at least once a week. Although people are working on their own projects, writing together in one place can provide the accountability of showing up, cultivate the sense that we are part of a community of writers and help create that energy buzz that comes from being around others who are doing the same thing. Please join us. Bring your laptop to the Faculty Development Office (in Booth Library basement below the north entrance), check in, grab a cup of tea or coffee, and start working. For further information, contact the Faculty Development Office at 581-7051.
