Love the writers and poets who come to speak at the Russell House? Want to get paid to watch them read? Come work for the Russell Series of Prose and Poetry!

At the Writing Programs we are hiring several students to join the staff of the Russell House for the fall semester. You will work closely with the Kim-Frank Writing Fellow, helping to run the visiting writers’ talks. Duties include greeting the campus audience and members of the public, managing the reception, setting up and breaking down each event, and helping to meet the speaker’s needs. Perks include meeting the authors (and having your books signed!) and sharing the reception food after the event, including desserts from the Green Room. Applicants should be well-organized, polite, and calm in the face of last-minute problems.
