2014 Writers’ Retreat/Boot Camp Dec. 8

Having a supportive environment for graduate students means giving them the tools and ideal space to get a jump on their dissertation or thesis.

UNCG graduate students can take advantage of a one-day Writers’ Retreat/Boot Camp Monday, Dec. 8.

The Graduate School will offer it for thesis/dissertation writers from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the Faculty Center.

Breakfast, lunch and snacks will be provided. Faculty consultants will be available to work with the students on writing issues, and the students are also welcome to make arrangements to consult their advisor/committee members if they are available. In addition to dedicated writing time, organizers plan to include an optional afternoon mini-session based on the interests of the group.

Registration is limited, although every effort will be made to accommodate writers committed to making progress. First preference will be given to doctoral students who are working on the dissertation. Master’s thesis writers are encouraged to apply as well.

A waiting list will be created as necessary.

The Graduate School is able to offer this opportunity thanks to donations by Bill and Edna Rose Guy.

There is no charge for this event, but in order to be registered, the student must also submit a $50 personal check (made payable to UNCG – The Graduate School) to The Graduate School, c/o Laura Drew (241 Mossman Bldg., UNCG, PO Box 26170, Greensboro, NC 27402-6170) as a sign of his or her commitment. For individuals who attend the Boot Camp, this check will not be cashed. It will be returned to the student on the afternoon of the Writers’ Retreat/Boot Camp. However, if an individual registers, but cancels after November 30, 2014, organizers will consider the check to be a contribution to The Graduate School Enrichment Fund, which supports the Writers’ Retreat and other programming for graduate students.
