Dissertation and Thesis Writing Clinics

This semester, the Writing Center will host three week-long clinics for people working on their dissertations and theses. Although conducted remotely, this clinic will bring participants together in a community of support aimed at recalibrating one’s relationship to structured writing time. Through brief informational sessions each morning, afternoon group debriefs, and at least some time spent writing in between, participants will gain increased process-awareness of the daily habits and practices that support (and undermine) writing productivity.

Students in all disciplines are eligible to join one clinic per semester.
