Great job opportunity for strong writers!

12 Apr

Are you a strong writer who enjoys helping others? If so, come work as
a tutor for the English Department Writing Center! We are actively
recruiting non-English majors to broaden the diversity and knowledge
base of our center, which serves UW writers in all disciplines. The
skills you acquire here will further your academic and future careers as
you develop your abilities to communicate clearly and recognize how
effective writing works.

The EWC is the oldest writing center on the Seattle campus and,
because of our required coursework, the most deeply rooted in Writing
Center Theory. The EWC hires only candidates who are
highly skilled writers to begin with and further educates them via a
full 400 level course in Writing Center history and methodology. In
English 474, /Writing Center Theory and Practice/, (M/W 2:30-4:20)
students study 40 years of WC scholarship and write four essays applying
these readings to their first hand experience in the EWC. Our starting
wage is $9.75 for undergraduates, with bi-quarterly raises and flexible
scheduling to work around your classes.

This is a great opportunity to work with people in a fun, relaxed
learning environment right here on campus, while also gaining valuable
experience that will look great on resumes and/or graduate school
applications. If you are interested, please send a recent essay
demonstrating your current writing skills along with a cover letter to
Louisa Peck at Also, check out our website at, or feel free to stop by Padelford B-12 and
ask any of the tutors about the course, their EWC experience, and what
tutoring can do for you.

Please apply by April 28, 5:00 pm.
