GPLL249 - Thesis Boost Writing Retreat

Does your thesis or research paper need a boost? Then join us for this hybrid three –days writing event, hosted in a supportive and motivating setting, and take a leap towards finishing your writing project.

Feedback from Previous Participants

Both my concentration on and enthusiasm for my research were renewed after participating in the GradProSkills Thesis Boost. Dedicating three days purely to writing in a focused environment and surrounded by like-minded students was just what I needed to make a dent in my last thesis chapter.

- Jacqueline Di Bartolomeo, History MA student

If you want to get some work done for your dissertation register for Thesis Boost. In the 6-weeks after participating in Thesis Boost, I was able to get work done on two chapters of my dissertation. Take the chance to enjoy this experience, get some really good tips on how to organize your writing process, and share your experiences with others.
