Writing the dissertation can be a long and lonely process. And without the structure of coursework, without the support of peers with shared experiences, it can be easy to lose momentum. The Dissertation Writing Accountability Group can help. 

This weekly writing group will provide a shared quiet space where students can write alongside other students at the dissertation stage, providing company, support and accountability. The general design involves writing from about 9:30-3:30 each Friday in Ekstrom 409, with a break for lunch. 3:30-4 will be reserved for students to share their progress and challenges with the other participants and to set goals for the next week. Participants will also be encouraged to set up a regular meeting with a consultant from the Writing Center during the writing period. 

All students at the dissertation-writing stage in any discipline are invited to participate, but the success of the group will rely on the fairly regular attendance of each group member, so please be prepared to commit to attending most weeks.

If you would like to learn more about this group or for help setting up your own writing accountability group, feel free to email Amy Lueck at or join our Facebook group.
