Writing Fellows

Worried about that history paper that’s coming up?

Good news! The Writing Fellows are here to help!

Writing Fellows are graduate students in history who can assist any undergraduate students enrolled history courses completely free of charge. They are able to help students at any stage of their outlining, drafting, revising, and editing process.

Students seeking their help can drop-in anytime during the Writing Fellows’ scheduled office hours, or schedule an appointment by emailing one of the Writing Fellows. Those seeking help with their writing assignments should bring *all* of the assignment instructions, prompts, rubrics, and other relevant materials so that the Writing Fellows may best serve their needs.

The Writing Fellows’ office is in 101 Old Athletics. Old Athletics is located between the Turner Center and the Counseling Center on All-American Drive.
