Description

The writing group mentor coordinates and facilitates ongoing group meetings for the SLCC Community Writing Center's (CWC) DiverseCity Writing Series. As a mentor you have the opportunity to create an atmosphere where writers can share their work and receive thoughtful feedback. This helps enable the CWC’s mission of promoting writing and diversity within the community. Volunteer mentors find that their own writing improves as they assist others in their writing.

Key Responsibilities:

  • Track group meetings
  • Provide prompts and constructive feedback to group participants
  • Participate in group with your writing
  • Be inviting to and collaborative with community writers
  • Understand group dynamics while being flexible, nonjudgmental, and creative
  • Assist in yearly group publication

Time Commitment: The Asian Association group meets every Thursday from 10:30am - 12pm. We ask that group mentors commit to a minimum of six months of service.


Group mentors will report to the DiverseCity Writing Series program coordinator.


A qualified mentor will be interested in the writing process, sensitive to diverse populations, patient, dependable, and open-minded.


Orientation and training for this position will be provided by the SLCC Community Writing Center. AS this position is in partnership with the Asian Association of Utah, additional training may be required.
