The Writing Fellows are specially trained peer tutors who work with writers in all disciplines. Writing Fellows staff the Writing Center (located on the second floor of Barnard Hall); they are also attached to various Barnard College courses.

Writers of all skill levels and in all disciplines are welcome to use the Writing Center. Excellent writers who understand the value of feedback use the Writing Center. First-year students writing First-Year English/First-Year Seminar papers use the Writing Center, as do seniors writing senior theses and students for whom English is a second language. Writing Fellows themselves often use the Writing Center.
