Writing Fellow Program

You can request a writing fellow for spring 2022 here.

In 2008, the Farnham Writers’ Center established the Writing Fellows Program, which matches tutors with specific courses to assist faculty members with writing aspects of their courses and to provide specialized and individualized writing support to students in those classes.  Although the role of our tutors is to provide peer writing support rather than subject/content tutoring, we do try to match writing fellows to courses in terms of majors and previous experience in academic fields. On average, we have between 15-20 writing fellows supporting courses across disciplines a semester. If you are interested in exploring the Writing Fellows Program, please contact Ghada Gherwash, Director of the Farnham Writers’ Center, or Stacey Sheriff, Chair of the Colby Writing Department. We are happy to meet with you!
