Frequently Asked Questions
Below are listed some questions you may have about the Writing Fellows program. If there are any other questions that you have, or items that you feel need to be added to the list, please contact Julie Foust Andrew at firstname.lastname@example.org or 797-3645.
How Do I Get Help from a Writing Fellow?
Writing Fellows are available for help in classes whose instructors have requested their assistance. If you are a student in a course that does not use WFs and you would like help with your writing, the on-campus Writing Center can help.
What should I expect when I meet with my Writing Fellow?
Students turn in their papers to the WFs and sign up for a twenty- to thirty-minute conference with a WF, before the final draft is due to the professor. Before the conference the WF reviews the paper, edits the grammar, punctuation, and spelling, as well as writes suggestions for revision. The student receives the paper back from the WF at the conference, which can then serve as a suggested template for the final paper.
How Can I Become a Writing Fellow?
If you are interested in becoming a WF, you need to fill out the online application form and take your writing samples and your proof of citizenship form to the program director, Julie Foust Andrew, in RBW 413. Contact her for deadlines. She will look over your application materials and contact you for an interview.
How Much do Writing Fellows Get Paid?
WFs receive a $600 stipend for their services each semester. These services include reading and commenting on papers, attending meetings, and counseling two to three times with approximately fifteen students over the course of the semester.
