Graduate Writing Boot Camps

Maintaining momentum on your dissertation or graduate writing projects can be tough, but making a commitment to structured writing time can help. Writing in the presence of others brings a sense of solidarity and productivity that get you through the complex challenges of large projects. For these reasons, the Writing Center sponsors  four-day writing boot camps to get serious productivity done during breaks.

Graduate Writing Boot Camps will be held online through spring of 2021.

Boot camps run during the January intersession, during Spring Break, and after the semester ends in May.

Virtual writing boot camps will take place online through Microsoft Teams. There will not be any tutoring or lectures. We’ll have a few check-ins each day to keep us accountable and on track, but most of the time will be reserved for quiet writing. The point is to make a commitment to your writing and to get as much done as possible. Because of this, we recommend signing up for all four days if you’re able to and committing to working the entire day. Reserve this time for your writing as you would reserve time for a class or a conference.
