Writing Studio accepting applications for graduate writing consultant positions

The Writing Studio is currently accepting applications for graduate writing consultant positions for the 2021-22 academic year.

Graduate writing consultants gain valuable pedagogical experience by holding one-on-one appointments with graduate and undergraduate writers, leading workshops in undergraduate classrooms, and facilitating writing groups for graduate and undergraduate students.

Applications will be accepted until positions for the 2021-22 academic year are filled, but for priority consideration, graduate students are encouraged to apply by Friday, March 19.

Graduate students who have previously worked at the Writing Studio report that their experiences have helped them become more confident writers as well as develop essential professional and pedagogical skills.

The Writing Studio values the perspectives of writers in all disciplines and is interested in recruiting consultants from departments and programs across the university. Applicants should have excellent communication and collaboration skills and be highly motivated and eager to learn. In recent years, the team of writing consultants has included graduate students from Peabody College of education and human development, the School of Engineering, the Divinity School and a variety of programs within the College of Arts and Science.

Beyond seeking graduate students working in a variety of academic fields, the Writing Studio strongly encourages applications from students of diverse experiences, including individuals from underrepresented backgrounds. Applications from students who are multilingual or who have experience supporting language learning are also strongly welcomed. The graduate writing consultant position can count as a federal work study position.

Questions should be directed to John Bradley, director of the Writing Studio, at john.bradley@vanderbilt.edu.
