Dissertation Writing Groups - Winter 2015

In collaboration with the Rackham Graduate School, the Sweetland Center for Writing coordinates several student-led writing groups for graduate students writing their dissertations.  These interdisciplinary writing groups provide structured support in a facilitated peer-based setting to aid dissertators working through long-term projects.  Dissertation Writing Groups typically consist of four members including a group leader.  Participants must be in the writing phase of their dissertations and available to meet eight times per semester to workshop group members’ writing on a rotating basis.   Each group will determine meeting schedules and expectations. 

Those interested in becoming group leaders must provide additional information with their applications.  Group leaders attend a facilitator training workshop and mentor meetings through the term.

Applications must be emailed to Laura Schuyler at schuyler@umich.edu by Friday, December 5, 2014.  Groups will start meeting in mid-January.
