About the Writing Fellows

The CUNY SPS Writing Fellows are doctoral students trained in Writing Across the Curriculum (WAC) pedagogy. They will not edit or correct your work for you, but will make suggestions for improvements to structure and content and help you identify and correct errors.  The fellows can provide assistance at any stage of writing from brainstorming and planning to proofreading and editing, and can assist writers at every stage of ability.

This page explains our current schedule, how to make an appointment or request written feedback, and introduces the fellows who can work with you this semester.

Summer 2019:

During summer sessions, the fellows have limited hours. The schedule includes day, evening, and weekend hours every week.  Please note that we have no service on July 4th when the school is closed for the holiday, or whenever there is an emergency college closing. 

Please go to our online scheduler and make an appointment for a live session or asynchronous written feedback.  If this is your first time using our scheduling system, please download this PDF for instructions. (Note the PDF also mentions appointments with the Quantitative Reasoning Fellows but they are not available during the summer sessions.)

If you need help with writing but cannot get an appointment because the schedule is full, you may also request asynchronous written feedback from tutor.com; see the SPS Tutoring page for more information.

If you have questions or need assistance with the scheduler, you can email the Writing Fellows at writingfellows@sps.cuny.edu.

The Writing Fellow for Summer 2019 is:

Erin Heiser has a Master’s degree in English with a focus on Composition and Rhetoric. She was previously a Writing Fellow at Lehman College, CUNY and is now the Senior Writing Fellow at SPS. Her current scholarly interests include memoir and autobiography studies, and the lyric essay. She is interested in the intersections of race, class, sexuality, and gender; and these themes show up regularly in her own writing and on her syllabuses at CUNY and NYU where she has enjoyed teaching literature and writing for over a decade.

This site is organized and maintained by the SPS Writing Fellows.
