FALL FACULTY WRITING CLUB
Join a faculty writing club to focus on productivity and camaraderie. Having trouble getting into a good writing rhythm? Need to get away from your office to get a change of perspective and a little privacy? Forget the coffee shop—join your colleagues on Thursday and Friday mornings from 10:00 a.m.–12:00 p.m. in the Faculty Center for a loosely structured writing session. We'll take five or six minutes each week to go around the room and state a goal for the time block and then spend the rest of the time working on our individual projects. Bring your own laptop or use a Faculty Center computer. And of course there will be coffee. Everyone is welcome!
