Become a Writing Consultant!

From: Virginia DeMers
To: Ringling College Students, Full Time and Visiting Full Time Faculty, Part Time and Long-Term Part Time Faculty, Staff with Faculty Status
Date: Thursday, December 6, 2018
Subject: Become a Writing Consultant!
Attachment(s):
PConsultApplSpr17.docx  Size: 44 Kb

Are you a good writer? A passionate and improving writer? Do you enjoy reading and thinking about how writing--even great writing--can communicate better?  Would you appreciate a few extra dollars a week and like to earn it thinking and talking about writing and helping fellow students? 

If you say "yes" to one or more of those questions, you should consider applying to be a writing consultant. 

The Academic Resource Center has begun the hiring process for this position. An application form is attached. Deadline for submissions is 23 January 2019. Those selected will spend several weeks in Spring 2018 learning the how's and why's of peer writing consultation. They will meet for training with the program advisor and current working consultants, practice consultation and review the characteristics of writing for various purposes and disciplines.

Writing consultants work with all kinds of writing and meet with students from all majors. So students may be composing poems, essays, screenplays, short stories, magazine articles, ad copy, design briefs, business documents. Artists and designers may find themselves writing in any of these genres and industries, so we need consultants with a range of interests and skills. 

If you are interested in this position (which looks, great, by the way on your resumé), please contact Virginia DeMers, the program's advisor by email or schedule an appointment using the link to "Academic Resource Center-Make Appointment" in your links on the campus portal.

Also, speak to your instructors: applicants should have 2 recommendations from former teachers--at least one for a class that required writing and at least one who teaches at Ringling College.  

Completed applications are due to Virginia on or before Wednesday, 23 January at 4:30 p.m. Training will start in early February and continue through early April. 

The ARC is located on the second floor of the Alfred R. Goldstein Library. Services are also available for reading textbooks, test study and memorization and time management. Don't forget to bring your completed applications! 

We look forward to hearing from you!
