During summer sessions, the Writing Center offers writing retreats allow graduate student participants to devote a week to working on their dissertation, thesis, or other major piece of writing.
Participants spend a majority of their time writing; however the program sometimes also includes discussions on topics relevant to graduate student writers, including motivation, goal setting, and time management.
Participants benefit from the structure of daily writing sessions and the social support of other participants to facilitate progress on their dissertation. They do not receive feedback on their draft; rather, the Dissertation Retreat provides support for their writing process.
