Bok Writing Fellows

An initiative of the Harvard Writing Project, the Writing Center, and the Bok Center for Learning and Teaching, the Bok Writing Fellows (BWF) Program appoints advanced graduate students to serve as in-house writing tutors in academic departments. The BWF program aims to provide discipline-specific writing tutorial services to concentrators, services not currently available through the Writing Center or the house tutor program.

The primary responsibility of the BWF is to hold weekly office hours and appointments to consult with students on the articulation, organization, and presentation of writing assignments for courses offered in the department. Typically the services of the BWF are especially valuable for students in sophomore and junior tutorials who are working to master unfamiliar disciplinary writing conventions. Aside from holding individualized consultations with students, the specific duties of the DWF are meant to be flexible and responsive to departmental needs.

For the 2018-2019  academic year, the following departments have Writing Fellows: History, Psychology, Government, Philosophy, Sociology, Anthropology, Linguistics, and English.
