Dissertation Writing Boot-Camps (DBC)?

Discuss this 4-day professional development writing program with your graduate school, dean, doctoral program director, and graduate student association. Dr. CV, the co-founder of Dissertation House, is available for campus visits.

Every dissertation boot camp, also known as a "Dissertation House," "Dissertation Writing Retreat," "Dissertation Boot camp," or "Dissertation Institute," follows a strict timetable. We start at 9 a.m., eat lunch at 12, and finish at 5 p.m. every day.

A University of Michigan student once told me that attending the Dissertation Writing Retreat is equivalent to hiring a personal trainer to help you get in shape. Prior to the trainer, you worked out at the gym on a regular basis. You thought you were fit until you met with a trainer. Afterwards, you're aching in places you had no idea could hurt.

You feel the same way after attending a Dissertation Writing Retreat/Dissertation House/Boot camp and working with a dissertation coach. You believed you were working on your dissertation, but you never spent that much time on it.  Hire a dissertation coach even if your university cannot afford to host a dissertation writing retreat. Book an appointment.
