Graduate Writers, Writing Centers, Dissertation Support


Graduate students writing dissertations often confront academic or personal issues that may cause them to lose momentum and stop progress on their dissertations. This workshop helped attendees to consider reasons why graduate students writing dissertations become stalled, to conceptualize what a program designed specifically to help stalled dissertators might look like, and to experience the process of creating methods and resources for such a program. Materials include hands-on activities and handouts that can be used to walk through the process of developing a writing support program for dissertators.
