Applications for Writing Fellowships Due This Friday!

Seniors, heads up. We know, we know: what with the thesis deadline looming, the last thing you’re thinking about is what you’re going to do after Wesleyan. We hate to break it to you, but it’s now or never!

If you’re interested in sticking around Wesleyan for another year helping to run the Writing Programs, put on fabulous events, work individually with numerous students, schmooze with visiting authors and artists, and help to train future cohorts of writing tutors, you should apply to be a Fellow in the Writing Programs! Every year, the Writing Programs awards three graduating seniors with prestigious one-year, post-graduate fellowships:

Two Ford Fellows assist the Director of Writing Programs in running the university’s Writing Programs and Writing Workshop, including training more than one hundred student writing tutors. The position offers significant teaching and administrative experience.

The  Shapiro Center/Russell House Arts Fellow organizes and supervises the writing and music events and helps with other literary events on campus. The job offers an opportunity to work with distinguished writers, journalists, and other artists.

Get those applications in soon! The application deadline is this Friday, March 30th. Visit the Writing at Wesleyan webpage for further information and application requirements for the Ford Fellowship and the Shapiro Center/Russell House Arts Fellowship.

If you have any questions, please direct them to current Ford Fellows Anya Backlund ’11 and Katherine Mechling ’11 at writingworks[at]  and Barbara Fenig ’11 at russellhouse [at]
