Computers and Composition Digital Press seeks graduate students to serve as CCDP Digital Fellows. As a fellow you will assist in the creation of digital materials to promote Press titles, and curate social media campaigns and initiatives for the 2021-2022 academic year. Additionally, you will have the opportunity to learn firsthand the ins and outs of helping with the public-facing side of a digital Press.
Duties may include:
- Conducting interviews with CCDP authors
- Contributing to the CCDP Scholar Electric Blog
- Serving as CCDP Ambassadors at professional conferences
- Soliciting book reviews of CCDP titles
- Contributing to CCDP social media initiatives
- Collaborating with the CCDP editors on other projects
- Opportunities to develop creative projects that will enhance Press publications
Applicants should be graduate students with research interests in digital rhetoric, digital publishing, and/or social media. Experience in blogging or maintaining professional social media accounts a plus.
This is a one-year appointment with the possibility of renewal for an additional year. CCDP fellows can expect to work on two small projects per semester – i.e., a blog post, interview, or social media campaign. Fellows are also required to participate in monthly Zoom meetings with the other CCDP Fellows and the Program Directors.
This is a volunteer role; however, this position will give the Fellows experience working with a leading digital press, connecting with scholars in the field, and gaining early access to upcoming scholarship. Fellows are also encouraged to use their experience with CCDP in their own scholarship and teaching.
