The Department Writing Fellow (DWF) is a resource for all undergraduates enrolled in courses offered by the Department of East Asian Languages and Civilizations (including Gen Ed courses taught by department faculty). The DWF offers one-on-one consultations to assist those at any stage in the writing process who would like help with articulating, organizing, and presenting their ideas in writing. Whether you need help starting a paper, formulating an argument, editing a draft, ensuring the clarity of your writing, or figuring out the conventions of writing and reference in the multi-disciplinary field of East Asian Studies, the DWF can help you.
