|Writing Fellows' Perspectives on the 4 CORNERSTONES|
Engage: “With WFs, students can take writing process into their own hands.”
Accomplish: “When students struggle with writing, they often just need an outside perspective. WFs can help them achieve their potential by listening to their ideas.”
Empower: “WFs push students to set new standards for themselves and empower them to take ownership of their writing.”
Enrich: “Students rediscover and practice that drive as a student and passion for writing that can dim without encouragement.”
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. Supervised by the Program Coordinator, 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.
