Graduate Student Writing Fellows Program

A pilot of our innovative Writing Fellows Program for Graduate Teaching Assistants took place during the 2019–20 academic year. The semester-long master class provided teams from English (Literature), Gerontology, Biology, and Engineering & Computing with intensive time to consider how writing works in their disciplines and how they can most effectively use writing in their courses and programs. Participants met once a week for an hour and a half for a full semester. They worked on a project of their choosing and presented it in a showcase. 

We do not have another Graduate Writing Fellows cohort planned for the immediate future, but we hope to host one again soon. Interested graduate students can email Elizabeth Wardle at wardleea@miamioh.edu for more information. Faculty may also nominate graduate students to participate.
