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 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.

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 Wednesday, August 28, 2013. Groups will start meeting in September.
