The deadline to apply to be a Writing Workshop Tutor has been extended to Wednesday, March 31! We encourage everyone, especially if you do not see your major or writing background frequently represented in the Workshop, to apply. Visit our website to learn more and submit an application.
Still not sure whether the job is a good fit? Jake Kwon, one of our tutors who is a senior biology major, told us: “I almost didn’t apply to the Workshop because I thought I was a subpar writer and didn’t have the proper skill set to tutor/mentor others on writing. The Writing Workshop has taught me that anyone can be good at writing and has broadened my perspective on what good writing looks like.” We really do mean we want *you* to apply!
