Becoming a Writing Consultant

Do you like collaborating? Are you curious about lots of subjects? Are you fascinated by language? Do you enjoy working with people from communities and cultures other than your own?

If so, consider applying to work as a writing consultant in the OU Writing Center. We hire graduate and undergraduate students from all areas of study to coach and collaborate with others as they write.

Most consultants have some kind of writing center experience, whether that’s tutoring in another center or coming to the writing center themselves as writers to get an insider's view. All of our writing consultants participate in learning retreats and our ongoing education practicum. There are also opportunities to do interdisciplinary research, present at academic conferences, publish, and gain leadership and facilitation experience.

For more information contact the Writing Center 


Many individuals who have worked at the Writing Center have gone on to graduate and professional programs such as Colorado State University Rhetoric and Composition; the University of Oklahoma Composition, Rhetoric, and Literacy; and Ohio State University Rhetoric, Composition, and Literacy; University of Oklahoma College of Law; University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center; Oklahoma State University Veterinary Medicine; and University of Arizona Law.

A position at the OU Writing Center will allow you to:

• Work with writers from across disciples and from around the world

• Present at professional and scholarly conferences

• Conduct research

• Publish in the field of writing centers

• Become involved in campus leadership


The OU Writing Center welcomes all writers and does not discriminate on the basis of race, gender, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability. We consider difference to be a seed for learning, writing, and a just society.
