Dissertation Writers Retreat

dwrheader

 

The DWR 2021 will be held January 12-14 and will be a virtual event. 

The retreat is for UofM students ONLY, and is intended for those students who are currently past their comprehensive exam stage and are working on their dissertation prospectus or final document. This free retreat, sponsored by the University Libraries, the Graduate School and the Center for Writing & Communication, focuses on strategies for completing your dissertation and how to plan for life after its completion. Each day will begin with a check-in, feature a presentation, and have time set aside for writing. Participants will be assigned to groups of peers at the same stage of the writing process. CWC consultants and librarians will be available throughout the day for writing & research assistance. Zoom links will be provided to registered participants before the event. Questions? Contact Michael Harris at mwhrris2@memphis.edu.

Registration is now closed. If you are interested in attending, please contact Michael W. Harris directly.
