Responsibilities A writing assistant has to help
the writer in a variety of ways. They have to
manage the telephone calls, e-mails and regular
mail; often, they will have to correspond on
behalf of the writer. They will have to schedule
lunches, meetings, parties and premieres. They
will have to greet visitors or business associates.
They will have to arrange travel and
accommodation when needed. If the author goes
on a book tour, the writing assistant may have to
accompany him/her. They will have to arrange
press conferences, book rooms and send out
invitations. They might also have to put together
press kits, containing the new book, a news
release and a photo of the author.
A writing assistant will most probably be active
in the creative process as well. They will have to
do research and revisions, take detailed notes
and help with presentations and pitches. They
might also be required to attend meetings
together with the writer and take minute-by-
minute notes. In some cases, they might have to
take dictation from the writer or type hand
written material.
In some unfortunate cases, the writer assistant
may also have to perform more trivial and
personal duties, like picking up lunch or coffee,
walking a dog or feeding a cat or picking up
laundry or medication prescriptions.
Educational Requirements
A writing assistant has to have excellent
communication skills: being able to keep an open
and professional relationship with their employer
and respectful and informed conversations with
anyone they might meet. A friendly attitude and
a positive demeanor are great attributes a
writing assistant should posses.
They should have good computer skills,
especially with word processing software like MS
Word. They should have excellent language skills,
with an observant eye for grammar and spelling.
They must be able to type or write very quickly
as they will have to keep notes very often. They
have to be accustomed with efficient research
methods.
A writing assistant has to help their employer
manage multiple tasks that is why they should be
very organized and they should have good
planning abilities. They should be able to work
under pressure as the work rhythm changes
when a deadline is approaching.
Dealing with a capricious writer can be a very
difficult and a writing assistant always has to be
patient and to keep a cool head
