To apply to do the co-op in Fall 2017, e-mail the following to Dr. Heather Hicks (firstname.lastname@example.org):
- a letter of application, highlighting your skills and experience in writing and doing research;
- a résumé
- two or three samples of your writing, which can include academic papers and published writing, whether in print or online (at least one published piece is recommended, though it is not required);
- two brief letters of recommendations from faculty or supervisors who know you and your work well. They should send letters to Dr. Hicks (see above).
We will also review your transcript, but you do not need to send it. The deadline for applications for the Fall 2017 semester is Friday, April 14, 2017. You may also submit your application in hard copy to the English department.
Students for the program will be selected based on their aptitude in writing and editing and their potential for success in the co-op. Work done in English courses on Sports Writing, Journalism, and Magazine Writing is particularly useful evidence.
