All consultants must successfully complete Eng 319: Writing Center Workshop, taught by the Writing Center Director. While taking this class, “consultants-in-training” are mentored for two hours per week in the Writing Center and they study writing across the disicplines, writing in different genres, strategies for helping writers address their rhetorical situations and for producing more effective writing. After completing the class successfully, students are then eligible to apply to work in the Writing Center.
The Writing Center welcomes consultants from all different disciplines! One of the best ways to become a more effective writer is to learn how writing is different in different disciplines/contexts and to help others with their own writing.
