22 Apr

Non-work study campus job that might interest any art major with a strong writing background. $9.75 an hour!


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 peckl@u.washington.edu . Also, check out our website at http://depts.washington.edu , 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.
