Current Writing Fellows

Training & Orientation

Writing Fellows enroll in CHSS 4900, a two-credit course held Fall semester on Thursday mornings from 7:30 - 8:45 a.m. the first semester they work as a WF. WFs cannot be concurrently enrolled in the class in which they are working as a WF. If WFs want to get a third credit of internship, they can sign up for one more credit during the spring semester by registering with Shanan Ballam in the English department.


WFs meet with the professor of the course they will be working with the first week of the semester. WFs are assigned to work with 15 students on their writing. Students in a course where the professor has elected to use WFs are required to meet with the WF on at least two assignments (no more than three) during the semester. Once the meeting is completed students can revise their assignment before turning it in to the professor for a grade. The average time commitment to work as a WF is 40-45 hours a semester.


Minimum compensation for working as a WF is $750 per semester.
