Working as a Writing Partner


All majors are encouraged to apply!

If you're interested in working at the writing center, plan to take either English 113: Writing Center Theory & Practice or English 113EL: Writing Center Theory & Practice (ELSJ). These courses teach students how to assist writers throughout the writing process. The courses highlight why being a writing partner is much more than simply being an editor.

ENGL 113EL or ENGL 113 are most often offered during spring quarter. One of the courses is offered each academic year.

If you have any questions about ENGL 113EL, ENGL 113, or about working at the center, contact Denise Krane (

Application materials (to be submitted after completing ENGL 113EL or ENGL 113)

Submit completed application to Denise Krane, The HUB Director, and include the following:

  • A letter of interest in which you explain why you want to become a HUB Writing Partner and what particular skills, interests, and experiences you have that will allow you to contribute to the HUB's mission
  • The e-Portfolio you will have completed in English 113/English 113EL
  • A letter of recommendation written by a previous instructor or employer who can attest to your ability to work well with others, your conscientiousness, creativity, and/or any other information that supports your application

Note: The writing partner job is a paid and/or work study position.
