Faculty Breakfast Club starts Jan 27

Contributed by: Jackie Grutsch McKinney
Published: Friday, 20 January 2017 5:30 AM
Once again the Writing Center will host writing time for faculty on Friday mornings in the Writing Center from 7:30-9:30 AM. This is a time when the Writing Center is closed to students, but open for faculty to come and get some writing done. If you are trying to make more room in your schedule for writing or would like to get out of your department for your writing time, consider joining us (in Robert Bell 295). The sound level and space available is similar to a coffee shop--there's some ambient noise and sometimes we share tables. However, this isn't a social hour or a writing group: we come and write.

We call this the "Faculty Breakfast Club" in allusion to the 1980s movie about being in early morning detention--you've got to show up and do your writing time. We don't, unfortunately, provide breakfast.

You don't need to sign up to attend, but if you're interested in attending and would like to be on the email list for reminders, let us know (writing@bsu.edu). We'll start on January 27th.
