研究生写作伙伴(GWF)是指经过培训可以与所有学科的同龄人一起工作的研究生. GWFs mostly conference with students one-on-one, and largely help with the “big picture” parts of students’ writing, as opposed to line-by-line edits: getting started on writing assignments; understanding assignments; finding resources; using other peoples’ writing in their own work; organizing papers so that they are easy to read; adhering to citation styles, and the like. Support is offered through a variety of methods, including face-to-face meetings and online communication. Having a GWF in a graduate program highlights the importance of reader feedback, drafting, and revision, which are key processes to successful disciplinary and professional writing.

How Do Graduate Writing Fellows Work With Graduate Programs?

At Bridgewater State University, GWFs work for 10 hours a week in a variety of different models, which are selected by each graduate program:

  • Referral-based: In this model, GWF服务主要提供给那些认为学生可以从写作支持中受益的教师推荐的学生.  Students can also self-refer to the GWF program.
  • Classroom-based: In this model, all students in a particular course, such as a gateway course to the graduate program or a research course, are required to attend meetings with the GWF.
  • Programmatic: In this model, students from more than one course across a program participate in the writing fellows program, meeting with a GWF at different points in their program and academic career (i.e. in their first and second year).
What Graduate Programs at BSU Are Involved in the Graduate Writing Fellows Program?

Graduate Writing Fellows are available to assist all graduate students, regardless of academic discipline. Below is a list of participating graduate programs with their respective faculty mentors:
