Studies in social motivation suggest that people persevere and stick to finishing difficult tasks when they see others in the room doing the same thing. This is the rationale for group writing environment of the Writing Boot Camp. Writing Boot Camps provide CI students with a quiet, dedicated, and monitored space to write. A WMC faculty consultant is available for feedback and answering questions on writing. Students are asked to register in advance. Students who register must commit to attending the entire session (four hours).

WMC Writing Boot Camps are FREE.
All undergraduate and graduate students are welcome!
