Learn about Writing Fellows

Don’t go into the application process blindly – read the description of the Writing Fellows process and read the expectations on our website. Understand the objectives of the program as well as what will be required of you. Make sure you will have the time to fulfill the obligations that come with being a Writing Fellow.

English 310: Writing and Tutoring is required for all first-semester Writing Fellows. It is a three credit course taught Tuesdays and Thursdays 12:05pm–1:20pm. This course fulfills the university’s Advanced Writing requirement (although departments may still require their specific advanced writing course).

We require at least a two-semester commitment. Writing Fellows typically work sixty hours each semester and receive $9.50/hr the first semester, with increases each semester following. You may be a Writing Fellow and work at another campus job. However, your combined hours may never exceed 20 hours per week, except during 4 weeks of high-volume tutoring in which Writing Fellows are permitted 25 combined hours. Flexibility in a second on-campus job is fairly essential.

Be aware of the minimum requirements:

  • At least two completed college semesters since high school graduation
  • Student status for Fall 2018

Note: We are looking for applicants from all majors.

Attend Information Meeting

Try to attend the optional Information meeting, which will be held on Thursday, March 8th at 11:00 am in B-037 of the JFSB. There you can meet the Writing Fellows Staff and learn more about the program.

Ask a professor to Recommend You

Ask one professor to send a recommendation via email to zllargey@hotmail.com. If your professor wants to mail a letter instead, send it to Zach Largey, English Department, Brigham Young University, Provo, UT 84602. In order to make a proper judgment, we ask for one paragraph about your writing skills and one paragraph about your ability to work with others.

For those who are called back for an interview

Be on time for your appointment. Forgetting the appointment or being late will not reflect well on you. Interviews will be held in 180 HGB.

Read Tips for a Successful Interview. The interview will last 20-25 minutes. We will also ask you to do a mock fellowing on a short student draft that we will give you beforehand.

Wait for the Decision

Final decisions will be emailed around April 2nd.
