Marietta College's Faculty Publishing Group wants to encourage faculty members to keep the momentum going on writing projects this summer by joining colleagues on Writing Wednesdays. A quiet space is devoted to writing from 9:00-11:30 a.m. each Wednesday from May 22nd through July 31st in Legacy 224. Each Wednesday during this period a small group of faculty gets together for a couple of hours of quiet writing time. Occasionally they go out for lunch after writing.
Writing Wednesday is not:
- a peer writing or editing session
- a setting for conversation or catching up with friends and colleagues
Writing Wednesday is:
- an informal gathering of scholars who — in the presence of other like-minded faculty — individually work on their summer research and writing activities
- a means of motivating faculty to build a weekly "writing/research day" into their summer schedules
