Work at Russell House


From Sarah Chrystler ’13/GRAD, Kim-Frank Fellow in the Writing Programs, who wishes to employ you:

Love the writers who come to speak at the Russell House? Want to get paid to watch them read? Come work for the series!

At the Writing Programs we are hiring several students to join the staff of the Russell House for the spring semester. You will work closely with the House’s Writing Fellow, helping to run the visiting writers’ talks. Duties include greeting the campus audience and members of the public, managing the reception, and helping to meet the speaker’s needs. Perks include meeting the authors and sharing the reception food after the event, including desserts from the Green Room.
