Dear 100 Hour Board,

What exactly is the writing fellows program? How do I find out what classes have it? Have you guys worked with them before? Are they helpful? Thanks!

A: Dear Needs some help,
From http://saugus.byu.edu/writing/fellows_description.html:

The Writing Fellows Program is a peer tutoring discipline-based program which encourages and supports the development of mature student writing across the disciplines and the curriculum. As trained and skilled undergraduate tutors, the Writing Fellows work with faculty and their students on two class-specific writing assignments. By reading, commenting, and explicitly focusing on long-term writing development, Writing Fellows contribute to the development of careful student thinking and writing and, as a result, support the aims of an undergraduate education at BYU.

Any professor on campus can request a writing fellow. You can find out more about which classes have requested and/or possibly will request writing fellows by contacting the Writing Fellows Coordinator, Beth Hedengren.
