Creative Writing Program

Assistant Professor

Candidates must have an M.F.A. in Creative Writing (or equivalent expertise) in hand by the start date, as well as publications; at least one book of poetry is desirable. Specialization in a secondary genre (e.g. playwriting, memoir, writing for children, literary translation, etc.), and a demonstrable commitment to undergraduate teaching is expected. Academic responsibilities include: teaching four beginning/intermediate or advanced-level undergraduate creative writing courses each year in poetry and a secondary genre, and a critical thinking and college seminar course for first year students. We expect this new faculty member to participate in administration of the CWP, including the annual Reading Series.

The CWP offers a comprehensive curriculum of workshops to undergraduate students at Bryn Mawr and Haverford Colleges. Class sizes are small and all courses are writing-intensive. The CWP aims to serve both students who might wish to pursue work in Creative Writing after graduation, and those who wish to explore Creative Writing on a course-by-course basis. An annual Reading Series brings writers of national and international reputation in all literary genres to campus.
