NWS Seeks Volunteer Assistants

The New Writing Series seeks one or more volunteer assistants for the 2009-2010 academic year. Duties will include conducting background research on past, present, and upcoming writers; helping maintain electronic mailing lists; some website and blogging work (will train); cataloging an extensive audio-visual archive from previous seasons; organizing a Series-related poetry library; and assisting with on-campus visits and event coordination. Job requires good research, interpersonal, and organizational skills, and the ability to work independently. Volunteers will be expected to commit between three to five hours a week to the position. Though this is an uncompensated position, students will gain valuable experience in literary research and programming, and will have access to a wide spectrum of visiting writers and events. To learn more about this opportunity, contact NWS coordinator Steve Evans at steven dot evans at maine dot edu, or on First Class.
