Undergraduate Writing Symposium

Dissertation Writers’ Retreats

The Writing Studio’s dissertation writers’ retreats are meant to provide dissertating graduate students with loosely-structured time to work individually in a quiet, collegial atmosphere. We couple ample writing time with optional, one-on-one consultations and daily workshops meant to focus writers on their argumentation, chapter structure, and daily writing goals. We hold an annual week-long retreat during the summer and mini-retreats during fall and spring breaks.

Dissertation Writers’ Retreats are sponsored by the Writing Studio, the Office of the Dean of the Graduate School, and the Graduate Development Network.
