WRITE-ON-SITE
What does it mean to "write-on-site"? Coined by Kerry Ann Rockquemore, Write-on-Site is a program where faculty can come 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. During Fall 2012, the Faculty Development office (1116 Booth Library) will be open for Write-on-Site from 9 a.m. to noon on Wednesdays. Check in, grab a cup of tea or coffee, and start working. There is space to work either in the office or in Booth Library's hidden treasure, the Faculty Reading Room. For more information, please contact the Faculty Development office at 581-7051 or by email at facdev@eiu.edu.
