visiting cw position in fiction & nonfiction: Kenyon College
- Kenyon College - Visiting Richard L. Thomas Professor of Creative Writing
A five-year untenured half-time (spring-semester) appointment, renewed annually, with responsibility for two undergraduate courses, one of which must be a writing workshop. The starting date is January 2013. The appointment comes with spring-semester campus housing and full twelve-month benefits. Although the Thomas Professor must be at Kenyon only in the spring semester, the position requires contributions to the life of the College throughout the academic year (such as advising students, consulting on curricular matters, and helping to plan events).
Minimum Qualifications: Qualifications include teaching experience and significant publication in both fiction and nonfiction (at least two books).
Applications must include a cover letter, a c.v., three letters of reference, and a writing sample (up to 30 pages). Only electronic applications will be accepted. We will read applications until the position has been filled, but you must submit your application by December 15 to ensure that it will be reviewed in time for interviews at AWP in Chicago (February 29 - March 3, 2012). An Equal Opportunity Employer, Kenyon welcomes diversity and encourages the applications of women and minority candidates. Applications must be made at https://employment.kenyon.edu
Deadline: Dec. 15
