The Boston University writing program expects to hire at least two new full-time lecturers in writing to start Fall 2013. Here’s the description:

Writing Program Lecturer

The College of Arts & Sciences Writing Program at Boston University expects to appoint at least two full-time Lecturers in Writing to begin in the fall of 2013. Responsibilities include teaching three theme-based first-year writing seminars (or equivalent) per semester and participating in program service and professional-development activities. The initial term of appointment is one year, with the possibility of renewal for additional one-year or multi-year terms.

The Writing Program is an independent instructional unit with over forty full-time Lecturers. The program’s primary responsibility is to offer the two-semester sequence of theme-based writing seminars that is the standard way for BU undergraduates to satisfy their writing requirements. Information about the Arts & Sciences Writing Program is available at www.bu.edu/writingprogram.

We welcome applicants from all disciplines, including experience in working with multilingual writers. Ph.D. or other terminal degree preferred; other graduate degrees considered.

Send letter of application, curriculum vitae, and three letters of recommendation to Professor Joseph Bizup, Assistant Dean and Director, Arts & Sciences Writing Program.

This grad student event hosted by BRAWN should be a great chance to meet some of your colleagues from around the city (not to mention a fun night out).

Five Horses Tavern
Thursday, Nov. 8th
8:00 PM


Do you like books? Feel like life is nothing but them? Why don’t we talk about it over beer? You know, misery to walk with misery.

Join us at Five Horses Tavern in Davis Sq. Imbibe beverages. Talk about anything but your work. Or your work. Or avoiding doing your work. Really anything.

Friends and significant others are more than welcome. This is not a graduate student only event; however, its goal is to bring graduate students from the different area programs together.

It’s Good to Live in a Two-Daily Town, which offers side-by-side comparisons of news coverage in the Globe and the Herald, seems like it could be useful to both WR101 and WR121 in a number of ways: talking about Boston, about bias, about writing to an audience, about the importance of consulting multiple sources, etc. If you do use it, please let the rest of us know how you did so in the comments.
