Writing Fellows and Oral Communication Fellows

Full Semester Fellows

As part of its efforts to support the teaching of writing and multimodal communication, the UD Writing Center trains undergraduate writing fellows and oral communication fellows to assist full-time faculty members with the instruction of writing in courses throughout the University curriculum. Fellows attend class meetings, meet with students individually or in small groups to discuss their drafts-in-progress, help facilitate peer response and discussions, and offer feedback to the professor on writing or speaking assignments and students’ progress. Working with a Writing or Oral Communication Fellow is a bit like working with an Undergraduate Teaching Assistant, except that Fellows are not responsible for grading.

Please check out the Writing Fellows Program Handbook to read more about what Writing Fellows can do and what a commitment to a Writing Fellow would mean for you. The guidance in the handbook applies to Oral Communication Fellows, as well–our next update to the handbook will include them more explicitly.

To request a Writing Fellow for Fall 2023, please complete this Fall Writing Fellow request form by June 1, 2023. You will be notified about the status of your request by July 7.
