Stop by anytime during Write-a-Thon to meet with a Writing Fellow for assistance on end-of-year papers. Writing Fellows help students discover the writing strategies and techniques that work best for them with the goal of developing better writers. The writer directs the session and may choose to focus on anything from brainstorming, to discussing organization and flow of argument, to developing a thesis.
