EW SIGN-UP OPTIONS! You can now sign up for 2-, 3-, or 4-day boot camps!

Maintaining momentum on your dissertation can be tough, but making a commitment to structured writing time can help. Writing in the presence of others can also bring a sense of solidarity and productivity that can get you through even the toughest projects.

Participants will arrive with their writing projects on and their laptops, along with any notes or books. There will not be any tutoring or any lectures. The point is simply to make a commitment to sustained writing time and to generating pages.

Space is limited and preference will be given to 4-day participants. To reserve your spot and to create an incentive for you to write, you must register through Eventbrite and submit a promissory note for $50 by Wednesday, May 2nd. An electronic version of the promissory note is now available on the Writing Center website and should be signed and email to Hard copies are also available at the Writing Center. If you do not attend the days you have committed to, the Bursar's Office will charge you and we will use the funds for future retreats. Scheduled academic commitments do not count as absences.
