Departmetnal Writing Fellows

An initiative of the Harvard Writing Project and the Writing Center, the Departmental Writing Fellows (DWF) Program appoints advanced graduate students to serve as in-house writing tutors for concentrators in departments. Responding to a perceived gap in the College’s support for undergraduate student writers, the DWF program aims to provide discipline-specific writing tutorial services to concentrators, services not currently available through the Writing Center or the house tutor program.

The primary responsibility of the DWF is to hold weekly office hours and appointments to consult with students on the articulation, organization, and presentation of writing assignments for courses offered in the department. Typically the services of the DWF are especially valuable for students in sophomore and junior tutorials who are working to master unfamiliar disciplinary writing conventions. Aside from holding individualized consultations with students, the specific duties of the DWF are meant to be flexible and responsive to departmental needs.

For the 2018-19 academic year, the following departments have Writing Fellows: History, Psychology, Government, Philosophy, Sociology, Anthropology, and English.
