Welcome!

Welcome to the CUNY School of Professional Studies Writing Fellows program. This site contains information about the Fellows and associated programs, plus a carefully curated set of resources, tutorials and writing FAQs for students and faculty.

Who We Are

The Writing Fellows are CUNY Graduate Center doctoral students trained in Writing Across the Curriculum (WAC) pedagogy. WAC is a CUNY-mandated program (1999) requiring that informal (ungraded) and formal writing become a robust and integrated aspect of course-work at all levels of instruction. Our program is based on the idea that writing to learn is just as important as learning to write. In other words, that through the process of writing one learns how to conceptualize and articulate knowledge in ways that are crucial to all disciplines. Writing skills are a crucial factor in student success and the Fellows are here to support students as they strive to improve their writing.

What We Do

At CUNY School of Professional Studies, Writing Fellows:

  • work with students one on one in individual tutoring.
  • hold webinars on finding, using, and citing sources each semester  in APA style and in the fall semester on Chicago style.

We are available to communicate and work flexibly with you in the fall and spring semesters by appointment via audio/video/whiteboard chat and written asynchronous feedback. Note: in the summer and winter sessions, when the Writing Fellows are not available, you may seek tutoring in writing at no cost to you from tutor.com; click Tutoring in your SPS course site to access this resource.

(Note that we currently do not have on-campus appointments.)  Please view the instructions for making an appointment or submitting work for written feedback here. You can also email us if you have questions.
