2017 Call for Writing Coaches at Brave Writer

Brave Writer is growing!

Want to join our creative, passionate, talented Brave Writer team? Would you enjoy reading student writing, helping kids blossom into competent, powerful writers? If so, keep reading!

In the next few months, we will hire and train more Brave Writer writing coaches. If you’re looking for a way to supplement your family’s income and have writing and homeschooling skills, Brave Writer may be right for you! Brave Writer instructors work part-time from home. Hours and scheduling are flexible. Pay is based on student load.

Our requirements are straightforward, but critical to our success. If you do not match all the criteria and still feel convinced that Brave Writer would be a good fit for your skills, please explain in your application to us. We’re interested!

Requirements

1. Homeschool Experience

You must have homeschooled your kids or been homeschooled yourself for at least 3 years.

2. Publishing

Publishing credits in any of the following venues are necessary:

  • magazine articles
  • book(s)
  • an active blog with a readership
  • a community newsletter (homeschooling, religious community, affinity group, etc.)
  • letters to the editor or editorials
  • you tell us! (There are lots of ways to be published today.)

3. Online presence

You need to have a warm, engaging online presence that is evident from links you send us. We prefer to know that you are active in an online community (homeschooling, film, gardening, theology, gaming) or that you are active on social media. We need to be able to see how you relate online because that’s what teaching for Brave Writer is all about!

4. Excellent writing skills

We are looking for people who write with clarity and ease using accurate grammar, spelling, and punctuation.

5. Creativity

You need to be a creative person who can problem solve and foster imaginative solutions to writing dilemmas. We’ll train you in our method, but it helps if you have a knack for editing, or expanding writing content already. It also helps if you have homeschooling experience that enables you to support and encourage other parents.

6. Knowledge of academic writing forms and literature

Not required, but helpful.

In addition to needing instructors for our core classes for children aged 8-13, we also have a need for instructors who can teach high school writing forms—college prep writing.
