The Department of English at Thomas More University is seeking applicants for a term-renewable position in English with expertise in creative writing instruction (i.e. poetry, fiction and creative nonfiction/writing for new media). Candidates should have experience teaching first-year literature and writing courses. Teaching responsibilities include four courses per semester with a minimum of two courses each semester in first-year courses. The ideal candidate will provide innovative approaches to teaching, be proficient (or gain proficiency) in Canvas, and engage with students across various teaching formats (i.e., hybrid, online and on-ground). We are particularly interested in candidates who will effectively advise/mentor students and energetically serve our small but vital department by contributing to curriculum development, programming, and student outreach/retention.
An MFA in Creative Writing or a Ph.D. in English or Creative Writing is required. Candidates should submit a cover letter, a current curriculum vita (which should include at least three professional references), and a brief statement of teaching interest. Application review will begin on June 25th and continue until an appointment is made.
