Registration for the 2024 Spring Break Write-A-Thon is now closed. Please check back in early 2025 to register for the 2025 Spring Break Write-A-Thon.

Need to get a jump start on writing your dissertation or thesis? Almost done but could use an energy boost? The Spring Break Write-A-Thon is for you!

Ph.D. students who have advanced to candidacy and MFA students working on their theses can sign up for 1, 2, or 3 full days of writing, depending on individual schedules and needs. Each day, participants will engage in dedicated writing time in the serene and cozy setting of College Building South at the Center for Ideas & Society. You'll be surrounded by peers who are also hard at work on their writing, which will help you stay focused on your own writing goals! A free continental breakfast and free lunch will be available every day of the Write-A-Thon. During the lunch hour, participants will engage in programming focused on goal setting, accountability, writing support, and more!

  • Center for Ideas & Society in College Building South

Next year's events are tentatively planned to take place in person at the Center for Ideas & Society in College Building South. 

The Write-A-Thon is free for any Ph.D. candidate who has advanced to candidacy or any MFA student working on their thesis. However, any student who registers and does not attend will be assessed a $25 fee to their student account per day missed to cover the cost of food and materials.
