Writing Communities

  • The Sweetland Center Dissertation Writing Institute is an 8-week writing program that meets in the Spring term for graduate students whose research is complete or nearly complete, who have conceptualized the principal elements of the dissertation, and who have already begun to write the dissertation.

  • In collaboration with the Rackham Graduate School, the Sweetland Center for Writing coordinates student-led writing groups for graduate students writing their dissertations.

  • The Poetry & Poetics Workshop is a Rackham Interdisciplinary Workshop committed to providing a forum in which professors and graduate students in the humanities can exchange work in progress and explore recent work in the fields of poetry, poetics, and lyric theory.

  • Individual departments and centers may have self-organized writing groups for doctoral students and postdoctoral fellows.
