Because Boot Camp is limited to 20 students, priority is given to students who have not participated in a boot camp before.
If you have participated in a previous two-week Boot Camp, you can request to be placed on a wait list and will be able to register if seats are available one week before the camp begins.
Each Boot Camp runs for two weeks, from am to pm each weekday, with optional afternoon writing sessions until 5pm.
Each Boot Camp is limited to 20 participants and includes group meetings, individual writing consultations, and at least four hours of sustained writing each day.
Eligible Ph D students: The cost for participation is $20.
This fee contributes to the cost of lunch, snacks, and caffeine provided for you each day. The Boot Camp program is limited to a maximum of 40 participants, and a short application is required. Eligible participants will be accepted on a first come, first serve basis with priority given to past, current and incoming DDF and AOP Fellows.
We encourage participants to form small self-motivated writing groups, participate in our other writing support programs, and meet with advisors at the Weingarten Learning Resource Center to sustain any momentum and writing habits they build during Boot Camp.
