You should be solidly in the middle of your writing process, with a target defense semester in sight. We focus on strategies to organize materials and writing effectively, to write efficiently and effectively for long stretches, to establish reasonable expectations and self-care during this stage of work, to ask for and receive feedback, to use Word to format your dissertation, and other topics of use to those progressing through their graduate journey. Topic list will be customized to the specific needs of participants in this instance of the course.
