Time Commitment: 5-20 hours per week
The Writing Studio employs graduate students as hourly Graduate Writing Consultants. We hire every spring semester for the upcoming academic year. Below are detailed descriptions of each post.


Because the Writing Studio values the perspectives of writers in all disciplines, we are interested in recruiting consultants from departments and programs across the University. Writing consultants gain valuable pedagogical experience in the following ways:

  1. by holding one-to-one appointments with graduate and undergraduate writers,
  2. by facilitating workshops in undergraduate classrooms,
  3. by facilitating writing groups for graduate and undergraduate students,
  4. by organizing educational programming in an interdisciplinary center.

Starting salary is $15.00 per hour. Graduate consultants work no fewer than 5 hours per week and may work as many as 15 hours per week if their other departmental duties allow.
