The Writers’ Exchange (WEX) is a fee-based professional writing service that supports Antioch and non-Antioch clientele. Although the core of this work is primarily with doctoral candidates, WEX assists writers with any project where a polished ﬁnal product is needed for publication. This ranges from grammatical assistance to developing outlines and plans for a manuscript, to format editing for style and program guidelines on dissertations and theses.
WEX is committed to providing professional writing support and empowering writers both within and outside of the Antioch community and is currently hiring a Graduate Assistant position to support the WEX Director, Manager, and clients. This position is best suited for students with at least two years left in their program.
Students need not have experience in all areas below to apply. Please visit wex.antioch.edu to learn more about WEX.
WEX Data Management:
- Recording and distributing invoices for AU Programs, WEX Editors, and ongoing clients
- Checking WEX Editor invoices for accuracy relative to work completed
- Creating monthly invoicing log with accompanying invoices (sent to Manager)
- Creating, maintaining, & updating annual reports
Graduate Assistants should have proﬁciency in writing and facility with online communication. GAs should be eﬀective collaborators and communicators interested in supporting other students’ growth as writers. As all WEX work is virtual, GAs must have a strong self-directed work ethic and be able to regularly schedule and fulﬁll their responsibilities. The ability to work as part of a team and communicate well with team members is crucial. Prior experience with Excel and an aptitude for technology are required for data management and reports. Most importantly, we seek individuals who are reﬂective and collaborative, able to accept and utilize feedback, and eager to grow and develop their own skills.
GAs may set their own work schedule with some ﬂexibility as long as they can commit to the required total hours, provide at least one regular availability period per week, and complete tasks on time.
Only students with Federal Work-Study eligibility may apply. Contact the Financial Aid Oﬃce if you have any questions about your eligibility.
Oversight of remote work:
WEX Graduate Assistants meet regularly with the Director and WEX Manager, confer via email during work time, attend regular group professional development meetings, track tasks in Asana, and document their hours and projects in a variety of shared documents and task lists in the WEX Google Drive.
To apply: please email a cover letter and resume to [email protected] discussing your past experience with writing and writing support and anything else you’d like to share about your interest in these positions.
