Finding a Teaching Job

Teaching positions in colleges and universities are scarce. While it is true that the M.F.A. degree is a good credential for entry-level teaching positions in writing programs, the Workshop cannot find jobs for its graduates. The program is primarily a community of writers who want to write while receiving academic credentials.

Students seeking teaching positions often use placement services such as Interfolio or the AWP's Career Services to manage letters of recommendation, transcripts, and other application materials. 

The Writers' Workshop office maintains a directory of all creative writing programs in the United States and Canada and posts job notices as they are received.
