Dissertation Writing Retreat (DWR) Online Online


You must apply for this program. It is not possible to register for Dissertation Writing Retreat (formerly Dissertation Boot Camp) through this website. To apply for the Fall 2022 program, complete the DWR Application Form on the DWR webpage.

This intensive one-week (Monday to Friday, 8:45 am - 4:00 pm) program is designed to help graduate students accomplish their thesis writing goals and accelerate their time to completion.

The Fall DWR will be entirely online except for Monday, which will be held in-person at the McLaughlin Library (the room number will be provided to accepted applicants).

Lunch will be provided. If accepted to the workshop, participants should make the necessary arrangements to be in-person on Monday. Participants are expected to participate all 5 days (Monday in-person and Tuesday to Friday online). 

DWR offers graduate students focused and supported individual time to write, as well as lessons on writing issues and access to one-on-one support with writing experts. We recommend that students attend DWR early in their thesis or dissertation writing process.

Writing Services offers DWR once every semester: Please note there is an application deadline of September 12, 2022. Registration is limited, so apply early.
