Dissertation Writing Groups - Application due Dec 11th

Dissertation Writing Groups
Winter 2016

Please forward to interested graduate students.

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 – five 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.  Groups will begin meeting mid-January, 2016.

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 11, 2015.
