Do you need help with your academic essay writing?
The Royal Literary Fund Fellowship scheme was conceived with the intention of placing professional writers in higher education institutions. The principal aim of the Fellow's work is to foster good writing practice across disciplines and media.
We are pleased to host a professional writer in the role of Royal Literary Fellow, who are employed by the Royal Literary Fund to help students with their academic essay writing.
The Fellow provides sessions between October and May each academic year.
Please note that RLF Writing Fellows do not undertake proofreading or English for Academic Purposes (EAP) tuition.
