These monthly meetings help faculty "get in the mood" and focus singularly on their writing.  They allow faculty to come together and commit to writing in a common space for a certain number of hours with no external distractions.  We provide coffee, tea and cookies to fuel your work and collaboration with fellow faculty.   During these monthly meetings, the Center facilitates the formation of small writing groups of like-minded colleagues with similar projects or writing goals.

Registration is requested, but not required.
