Dissertation Writing Retreat - University of Minnesota
The Writing Center is hosting its annual Dissertation Writing Retreat this May, with sponsorship from the English Department, the Graduate School, the K-State Libraries, and the Offices of the Provost and the President.
Thanks to generous support from the Graduate School, Student Writing Support offers a free annual Dissertation Writing Retreat. Each May Term, fifteen dissertation writers from across the University gather in 15 Nicholson Hall for three weeks of concentrated dissertation-writing time in a supportive group setting. The Dissertation Writing Retreat is an initiative sponsored by The Graduate School to support graduate students in meeting their dissertation writing productivity goals. For three intensive days, doctoral students from all disciplines will meet in a quiet space for extended blocks of time that are dedicated to writing. During the retreat, participants will share their daily writing goals and progress, receive feedback to address challenges, and attend short lunchtime workshops. The retreat is also a platform for formal and informal reflection and discussion about writing, which can help to improve one’s writing skills. Students nearing completion of dissertation writing are especially encouraged to apply, however all graduate students in the dissertation writing stage or working on research writing for publication are encouraged to apply. The workshop topics may change or be added in response to participant needs.
