Writing Fellows Program

The Writing Fellows program matches trained undergraduate peer writing fellows with specific writing-intensive courses.

The Writing Fellows Program fosters writing as a process by allowing time and energy for review and significant revision. We believe that a writer's development doesn’t stop after the first or even the second year of college and that each new year, class, discipline, or project brings new challenges and learning opportunities. We emphasize collaboration and process as crucial aspects of becoming more engaged, thoughtful writers. 

Students enrolled in Writing Fellows courses are required to meet with writing fellows no matter what their background or experience with writing, because we believe every writer's work benefits from interactive dialogue about the writer's goals. Faculty in the program share this commitment to writing as a process and to peer review as a crucial aspect of developing as an academic writer.
