My entry into administrative work, as has been the case with many writing program and writing center administrators, was the result of serendipity . I had just graduated with my Master’s degree in literature, and I had no immediate plans for what to do. I had spent several years working as a writing tutor and teacher while in my graduate program, and, like many, I found the work meaningful and significant. The stars aligned, it seemed, as the writing center director at my institution retired the very semester I graduated with my master’s degree, and the department needed someone to step in while they could convince the upper administration they needed to hire a tenure-track faculty member to fill the position long-term.
