Writing Fellows Program photo

The Arts & Science Writing Fellows, a multidisciplinary cohort program, meets weekly in the Conley House to help faculty navigate the challenges and tensions accompanying the production of manuscripts by providing a community to incubate, nurture, and stimulate ideas.


  • small and large group accountability for faculty writing goals
  • consistent peer feedback on ideas and drafts
  • opportunities for small and large group presentations to workshop and refine ideas 

Time commitment

In exchange for a course release, members are expected to attend weekly meetings (2 hours) at the Conley House.

About the program

The A&S Writing Fellows Program will buy out one course so that scholars can utilize the time to complete a high-merit project.

Successful candidates will participate in weekly sessions throughout the semester where the cohort of five faculty per semester will set writing goals, evaluate progress, and receive peer feedback.

The program enjoys support from the Campus Writing Program at the Conley House.


The fall and spring 2023-24 application cycle closed December 12, 2022.

2024-25 application information coming soon!
