WHO WE ARE: Writing Fellows are trained peer facilitators who support students at any stage of the writing process and support faculty goals for engaging students as writers through their own course work and assignments. Writing Fellows help create a cultural expectation for comprehensive development of the abilities outlined in HWS curricular Goals 1 and 2.

WHAT WE DO: Writing Fellows help students learn and develop ideas in writing. Writing Fellows provide productive feedback on written work and offer strategies and brainstorming techniques for writing in all skill levels and across all disciplines.

WHEN AND WHERE YOU CAN FIND US: To make an appointment, use the link at the top right hand corner of this page. Writing Fellows are located in the Center for Teaching and Learning in the Rosensweig Learning Commons on the second floor of the library. Writing Fellows typically meet with students in the afternoons and evenings on Sunday through Thursday.
