***advance registration required***4 day Writing Retreat

Maintaining momentum on your dissertation can be tough, but making a commitment to structured writing time can help. Similarly, writing in the presence of others brings a sense of solidarity and productivity that get you through the complex challenges a dissertation presents. To this end, the Writing Center sponsors four-day writing retreats modeled on a similar event at Stanford.

The boot camps run during the January intersession, during the March Spring Break, and after the last week of classes in May. Participants arrive with their laptops, any notes or books, and their drafts–or simply ready to produce drafts. There is no tutoring, nor any lectures. The point is to commit to sustained, undistracted writing time. We supply coffee and tea each day to keep you fueled up.
