Type of opportunity: The UW Writing Center is excited to announce openings for several peer interns. We seek to build a diverse team of undergraduates from departments across campus. Applicants should value effective writing and communication and should be excited to support the mission of the UW Writing Center by helping maintain a professional atmosphere, coordinate consultations, and establish a campus-wide presence. Interns will also have the opportunity to progress to other roles within the UWWC.

Duties: Writing Center Interns contribute to the mission of the UW Writing Center by helping us maintain a professional atmosphere, coordinate consultations, and establish a campus-wide presence. The Writing Center invites strong writers and communicators from all majors and colleges. Interested interns can progress to other roles through tutor training, after an initial 10-week period.
