In November 2014, The Monterey Institute’s Graduate Writing Center, the Institute’s Digital Learning Commons, and The WIP will team up to pilot our Critical Voices Writing Fellowship. Three to five international writers will be selected to for this initial pilot program.
Selected fellows will be paired with 1-2 Institute graduate writing workshop tutors and offered personalized English language support in the GWC’s structured tutorial approach. Tutorials will be conducted online via web conferencing and an open-source learning platform.
The goal of this collaboration is to develop the publishing potential of international women writers whose voices are underrepresented in online global English-speaking publications. We will accomplish this goal by leveraging the GWC’s pool of graduate student writing workshop tutors and the DLC’s knowledge of instructional design and curricular technology to support online writing and editorial skills development.
