Every year, Pomona has a staff of about 30 Writing Partners. Writing Partner nominations are solicited from faculty and staff across the College, and self-nominations are encouraged. New Partners take the full- or half-credit section of English 87 – which examines writing theories, processes, and pedagogies – during their first semester working at the Writing Center. All Partners participate in ongoing training through biweekly lunch meetings and occasional evening workshops. Partners work approximately 5 hours per week in the Writing Center, and many work attached to ID1 courses in the fall and courses across the disciplines in the spring.
If you are interested in becoming a Writing, Speaking or Image Partner and are currently a first-year or a sophomore, please email the Writing Center to let us know you are interested.
