Virtual Dissertation Writing Summer Camp

Monday, June 1, 2020 - 9:00am to Friday, June 12, 2020 - 1:00pm

This two-week writing camp for dissertating graduate students meets in the first two weeks of June from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. every weekday.

Each day begins with a group discussion and ends with a presentation focused on dissertation writing, but most of the time is spent writing. Participants set daily and weekly writing goals and Writing Center staff are available for consultations each day. All meetings will be online via Zoom or the Writing Center's online consultation platform.

There is a limited number of spaces, so priority will be given to students who are post-proposal and have some dissertation writing already done.


Co-sponsored by the Graduate College, the Obermann Center for Advanced Studies, and the Department of Rhetoric.

Individuals with disabilities are encouraged to attend all University of Iowa-sponsored events. If you are a person with a disability who requires a reasonable accommodation in order to participate in this program, please contact Erin Hackathorn in advance at or (319) 335-4034.
