Dissertation Writing GroupsFall 2016


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 at least eight times per semester to workshop group members’ writing on a rotating basis. Each group will determine meeting schedules and expectations.

Group leaders will receive a stipend for their services, and those interested in becoming group leaders must provide additional information with their applications. All accepted students participate in an orientation session onTuesday, September 20, at 4 pm in North Quad Space 2435. Group leaders attend mentor meetings through the term.
