  • Writing Week for Graduate Students
    May 8, 2017 9:00 AM

    Are you finding it a challenge to start a graduate writing project? Or finish one? Are you working on a paper for publication or perhaps you’re contemplating that first chapter of your dissertation or thesis? Whatever the situation, we thought that you might like a few days dedicated to writing in a supportive environment. The concept we will be using has worked well during the past nine years here at Dalhousie. Graduate students have consistently reported they find the week to be an effective “push” to getting the writing completed.

    How it works: Students register by email, show up each day at 9:00, go off to write, and then meet briefly at the end of the day to give a one-minute progress report. 

    Writing Schedule: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday 9-4 and Friday 9-12. We’ll meet daily in B400 of the Killam Library.
