The UW–Madison Writing Center and the UW–Madison Graduate School sponsor two Dissertation Writing Camps in winter and spring. Acceptance in the program is competitive, and participation is limited to 20 dissertators per camp.
Facilitated by senior Writing Center staff, this week-long camp provides participants with intensive, focused time to write and revise their dissertation chapters in a supportive atmosphere alongside other writers. Those selected to participate have multiple opportunities to share writing goals, experiment with various writing strategies, and receive feedback on their work.
Camp 1: Jan. 8-12, 2024
Modality: In person at the Writing Center
Applications to the January 2024 Dissertation Writing Camp opened October 25. The deadline to apply is Wednesday, November 15.
Camp 2: TBD (Spring 2024)
