It is a truth universally acknowledged that Savannah Whiting ’13/GRAD has written in with a great job proposal:

Have you always dreamed of having your name on one of those colorful Writing Workshop posters? Want to get Wes Compliments on your brains, not (just) your body?

If you’re an articulate writer, organized student, and all-around gregarious person looking for a job next year, look no further. Apply to be a writing tutor!

The Writing Workshop is currently hiring Workshop Tutors, Course Tutors, and Writing Mentors for the Fall 2014 and Spring 2015 semesters.

Tutors will be compensated for one semester of work with a $400 stipend and 1 course credit in English. All tutors are trained in ENGL 491/2, the Ford Teaching Seminar, a one-semester course that meets on Tuesdays from 12-1 PM.

There are two steps in the application process:

  1. The pre-application form is due online on Friday, April 18 at 5 pm. This is a short form indicating your interest in applying for a position.
  2. The full application is due on Friday, April 25 at 5 pm. Applications are to be delivered to Professor Greene’s office (Downey House Room 207).

If you are a veteran tutor, you don’t need to fill out questions 2 and 3 on the second page.
