Eicher Hall Second Floor

The Writing Tips Tree will be live starting on October 14 and will be located on the second floor of Eicher Hall in front of the Jones White Writing Center. Our Writing Tips Tree offers the campus community a chance to share your best “writing tip” with the IUP community and larger National Day on Writing Community. Faculty, staff, and students are all welcome to come, submit a tip, take a selfie with the tree, and tag themselves on social media with #WhyIwrite and #IUPWriting. Submissions will be entered into raffles for prizes at our celebration on October 21.
