The Department of English at Michigan State University invites applications to fill a two-year (9 month) full-time fixed-term Assistant Professor in Creative Writing beginning August 16, 2020.
Teaching responsibilities include three courses per semester (3/3 teaching load), to fill areas of department need. The successful applicant must be able to teach a multi-genre Introduction to Creative Writing course, as well as single-genre workshops in fiction at the introductory and advanced levels. Secondary areas of expertise in creative nonfiction and arts programming are desirable. Strong applicants should be committed to engaged learning practices, and have experience mentoring students from diverse backgrounds, including students of color, LGBTQ students, first-generation college students, and students with disabilities.
Housed in the Department of English, the Creative Writing Program offers a new minor in creative writing, as well as a rigorous undergraduate concentration within the BA in English, emphasizing the relationship between creative and critical practice and invested in community-engagement. The Department of English is a dynamic inclusive community that encourages intellectual and cultural diversity, prepares students for a range of careers that require global cultural knowledge, and is an integral part of the College of Arts & Letters and Michigan State University’s international engagement.
