The Drew University Writing Fellows Program builds on the tradition of peer mentoring developed by the University Writing Center, but takes it into the classroom. Peer mentors attend class in addition to meeting students outside of class, and they work with students on whatever aspect of their writing they need to develop to help them succeed in Writing Intensive and Writing in the Major courses and course sequences. We currently offer two kinds of Writing Fellows and are developing a third. Please contact us to learn more:

  • College Writing Fellows: This grant-funded program assigns undergraduate Writing Fellows to first year writing courses.

Van Houten Memorial Fund Writing Fellows: This grant-funded program assigns undergraduate writing fellows to work with a range of different Writing Intensive (WI) and Writing in the Major (WM) courses throughout the College curriculum.
