WITS is looking for writers and educators who can teach the joy of creative writing to young people. Employment is part-time, typically a half-day of teaching one day a week from September–May. A yearlong commitment is required. The pay is $60 per teaching hour. In addition to teaching, the job duties include preparing lessons, responding to student work, and compiling anthologies of student writing at the end of the school year. We look for writers with teaching or mentoring experience who can convey their passion for the written word in ways that are relevant for Houston area children. In particular, we are seeking bilingual writers, but others are encouraged to apply as well.
We accept applications year round, and we anticipate a new round of hiring in spring 2017 for our summer camps.
To apply, please complete our application. In addition to the application, we require a cover letter, résumé with 3 references, and a 10-page writing sample. You may upload these documents via the application, email them to us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or mail them to WITS: 1523 W Main Street, Houston, TX, 77006.
