Tenure-track Appointment in Creative Writing (with a concentration in Poetry)

Beginning fall (August) 2024. Rank open. To teach five undergraduate writing workshops per year at a highly selective liberal arts college with an emphasis on excellence in teaching. The job also includes advising two to four senior theses a year and helping to manage a visiting writers' reading series. Reed has only two positions in Creative Writing; with this in mind, the successful candidate will be asked to help oversee a program for students that is integrated with the English Department and to work with colleagues to design other ways of giving creative writing a presence on campus. We will be seeking someone with proven teaching ability and an active engagement in writing and publication on the national level. M.F.A. or the equivalent required.

Through Interfolio (http://apply.interfolio.com/125695), please submit a letter of application, CV, a selection of creative work (maximum 30 pages; please include recent work), and three letters of reference. Your cover letter must address the following:

  • Experience in teaching a diverse group of students
  • An articulation of your artistic vision and path, including how your creative work informs your pedagogy
  • How your teaching, scholarship, mentorship, and/or service might support the commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion articulated in the College’s diversity statement (https://www.reed.edu/institutional_diversity/diversity-statement.html).

All application materials must be received by September 15, 2023. For further information about this position, please contact Peter Rock, chair of the search committee, at prock@reed.edu.
