Summer 2024 Dissertation Writing Group - Registration Deadline


5 p.m., May 17, 2024


We invite you to join us this summer for a FREE online dissertation writing group!

This writing group will provide students with opportunities for writing productivity and peer feedback on their dissertation (e.g., dissertation proposal, chapters, etc.).

The dissertation writing group will meet from 11:00am – 1:00pm on Tuesdays from May 21st – June 25th.

During our meetings, students will participate in the following writing activities:

  • Write together as a group using structured writing sprints and breaks
  • Weekly check-ins in small groups on individual writing goals
  • Peer feedback on their writing

We hope this group can be a helpful space for graduate students to build community with fellow dissertators and make progress towards their writing goals! We invite you to sign up here. The registration deadline is Friday, May 17th by 5pm.
