If you are interested in developing as a writer and enjoy engaging fellow students in conversations about their writing, a job in the Writing Center may be for you. We seek applications from current first-, second-, and third-year Pitzer students in any discipline—from the humanities to the social sciences to the biological and natural sciences. Next position start date is the beginning of the Fall 2017 semester.
