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.

During AY 2019-20, ENGL 113EL will be offered during spring quarter.

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

Application materials (to be submitted after completing 113EL)

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.
