***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. And writing in the presence of others can bring a surprising sense of solidarity and productivity.

The Writing Center is sponsoring this 4-day writing retreat modeled on Stanford’s dissertation boot camp, for graduate students at the dissertation stage.

Participants will arrive with a draft of the chapters they are working on and their laptops, along with any notes or books. There will not be any tutoring or any lectures, and internet access will be limited. The point is to make a commitment to sustained writing time. We will supply coffee and tea each day.

Space is limited to the first 20 who register! Go to: for more information and registration information.
