Rebecca has been an amazing member of our team and we hope we can find someone just as brilliant to step in from late 2015 to late 2016. You’ll need to be reasonably Twitter literate, have experience of the challenges (and rewards!) of writing, be open to new writing approaches and, most importantly, be enthusiastic about supporting others in their writing. You’ll also need to be living in, or close to, the GMT timezone. Although you do need to be an academic of some description, we’ll take anyone from PhD student to tenured Professor.
The sessions are held on the first and third Tuesday of each month and your contribution will include: sending reminder tweets about upcoming sessions, keeping time during sessions, and writing cheering tweets to encourage those who’ve participated. We’ll also encourage you to seek out and share relevant information on writing between sessions.
All the members of our team volunteer their time, so there is no monetary compensation for this role. The emotional and intellectual rewards, however, are invaluable.
