Working at the HUB
What does it mean to be a Writing Partner?
Writing is communication. In order to communicate well, writers benefit from partnering with others to determine what “makes sense,” what “sounds good,” and whether ideas “flow.”
HUB Writing Partners recognize the importance of such collaboration and are ready to help writers determine whether they have written what they mean and mean what they have written. A Writing Partner will be exactly that: a partner who helps a writer to see a problem in a different way, to understand better what an assignment entails, to uncover new ways of organizing ideas, and to revise those ideas so they reveal precisely what the writer intends to say.
Applying for work at the HUB
All applicants must complete English 191A (Practicum for Writing Tutors) with a grade of B or higher before applying to the HUB. (English 191A will be offered in fall 2013 and spring 2014.) Ideally applicants will take English 191A at the end of their freshman year, during their sophomore year, or at the start of their junior year.
Submit completed application to the HUB Director and include the following:
Writing partners need not be English majors. They just need to appreciate writing, be effective, patient communicators, and be passionate about helping people.
