Description

Do you need help jumpstarting a thesis/ dissertation proposal, thesis, dissertation, professional paper, or publication? Are you stuck on how to create an outline? Are you interested in learning about how to avoid plagiarism, how to build the literature review, and what resources are available to help you format your citations? Would you like to become better at time management and meeting goals/ deadlines that you set for yourself?

If you answered yes to any of the questions above, then we invite you to apply for the Grad Rebel Writing Boot Camp, which takes place from Monday, August 13, 2018 to Friday, August 17, 2018. The Grad Rebel Writing Boot Camp is a week-long program that provides graduate students with the skills and knowledge necessary to become more efficient and successful writers. It also provides students with the opportunity to learn about the different types of writing groups as well as how to successfully start and maintain their own writing group. The program is a collaborative effort between the Graduate College, UNLV Libraries, and UNLV Writing Center.

The Grad Rebel Writing Boot Camp provides you with the tips and strategies to become a more efficient, successful, and confident writer. In addition, students will also learn how to start and maintain their own writing groups at the completion of this program. Finally, participants who successfully complete all program requirements, including the week-long Boot Camp and three follow-up writing sessions during the Fall semester, and submit their FAFSA form will be awarded a $100 Access Grant.
