Write on Site Fridays at Noon

The SSRC is hosting weekly “Write on Site” events during May, June, and July for DePaul Faculty, Students, and Staff.  These writing sessions will take place on Friday afternoons (from 12-2 pm) in the conference room in Suite 3100 of 990 W. Fullerton.  Bring your lunch, bring your computer, and write away from all the distractions of your office.

What does it mean to “write-on-site”? The term originated by Kerry Ann Rockquemore (Sociology and African-American studies at UIC) and pertains to writers congregating to work on their specific projects for two hours at least once a week. Although working on their own projects, writing together provides the accountability of showing up, and cultivates the sense that writers are part of a community.

The first session will take place on Friday May 6, at noon.  For information or details contact Jessi Bishop-Royse at jbishopr AT depaul.edu.
