The Grad Rebel Writing Boot Camp is a week-long program that occurs twice a year and 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 winter session takes place from Monday, January 7, 2019 to Friday, January 11, 2019. Students will be expected to check-in promptly by 9 a.m. Monday through Friday at the Amargosa Room (LLB 1149). Each day concludes by 4 p.m. A light breakfast and lunch will be served each day. Throughout the week, there will be different guest speakers, workshops on various topics, as well as fun activities (e.g., yoga as stress management). In addition, students will typically write for 3-4 hours each day. Students will also have the opportunity to set-up a one-on-one appointment with their subject librarian and a one-on-one consultation with a Writing Center consultant.
