MFA or PhD in creative writing or relevant field, or equivalent experience. One book or equivalent record of prominent national publication required. Our new colleague will maintain an active publication record, teach a range of coursework in creative writing and literature, and work closely with MFA students, including serving on and chairing thesis committees.
