Thesis and Dissertation Writing Camp

Thesis & Dissertation Writing Camp is a free program that helps graduate students prepare for and become productive towards their thesis or dissertation. The program offers resources relevant to the writing process and quiet writing time for students to actively work on their project with editorial consultation available on site. The goal of this program is to help students overcome procrastination, address their individual writing obstacles, develop a peer writing community, and to gain a full understanding of S&T’s thesis/dissertation process and expectations.


Who can attend Writing Camp?

All Missouri S&T graduate students are eligible to attend. Writing Camp is designed to be versatile enough to benefit students no matter where they are in the writing process, though it will be most beneficial for those who are currently drafting their thesis/dissertation. 

Seats are limited, so students should only register if they will be able to attend the session they sign up for.


The program is hosted approximately twice per month during the regular academic year and twice during the summer.

There are no specific requirements.  You should have a draft of a writing project in progress.  You will also be asked to complete a self writing assessment at the beginning of the workshop.

You might want to bring:

  • Laptop
  • Chargers and extension cords
  • Headphones
  • Snacks/ beverages

Because of the hands-on nature of the program, it is currently only available to students who can be physically present. Please refer to the list of resources in the sidebar of this page for digital copies of materials discussed during Writing Camp.
