    I like how open this writing application is open to people working from home and being able to at least be in person once a week!

    How interesting! I have some friends who center on spoken word narratives that might be willing to take the opportunity, I’ll have to show them this.

      My apologies, I sent that last message too soon! What a wonderful way to gain experiences in a hands-on environment. I think it would appeal to the majority of people because of the minimal hours required per week; it’s perfect for university students!

    This is so cool! I love that it’s open to writers of all backgrounds, not everyone who is a writer goes to school for it!

    This is actually a super interesting position for those like myself who love to write and also work with younger students. I’ve worked with middle school and high school students before on other academic topics such as math and reading, but unfortunately I’ve never specified in writing with them. I will definitely be looking into this program and maybe even decide to apply if my schedule can work with it!
