Professor of Undergraduate Writing

The Undergraduate Writing Program of Warren Wilson College seeks a creative nonfiction writer to join our faculty and assist us in shaping our growing program. The Writing Program, which exists alongside and shares faculty and courses with the English Department, offers a creative writing major and minor with tracks in poetry, fiction, and creative nonfiction. In addition, the Writing Program currently houses first-year writing and a Writing Center, supports a literary journal and an undergraduate research journal, and hosts a reading series and twice-a-year Writer-in-Residence.


This is a full-time, junior-level position in an extended contract system with a 3-3 load. All regular writing faculty teach broadly, with courses that include introductory multi-genre classes, tiered single-genre workshops, and first-year writing seminars. Faculty in this position would develop tiered courses in creative nonfiction that seek to expose students to the breadth of the genre and would also develop reading courses in their area of expertise aimed at diversifying and deepening our students’ exposure to contemporary literature.


We seek candidates with an M.F.A. and/or Ph.D. in Creative Writing/English/Literature (in hand by August 2015).
