Computers and Composition Digital Press seeks graduate students to serve as CCDP Digital Fellows and assist in the creation of digital materials to promote Press titles and initiatives for the 2019 – 2020 academic year.
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 Promotions & Social Media Editor on other projects
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 Skype meetings with the other CCDP Fellows and the Promotions and Social Media Editor.
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 may have the opportunity to publish on their work with CCDP in collaboration with the Promotions and Social Media Editor. Fellows are also encouraged to use their experience with CCDP in their own scholarship and teaching.
