Dissertation Writing Peer-Review Groups

The goal of these small writing groups is to provide a forum for students to receive feedback as they work on a chapter of their dissertation with the guidance and motivation of their peers. During weekly meetings, facilitated by Graduate Writing Consultants, the participants take turns presenting parts of their chapters, from outlines to revised prose.  They comment and give suggestions on each other’s work, and they discuss obstacles and potential pitfalls in the writing process. After the first meeting, the groups can modify the time based on the participants’ availability.
