Successful candidates will work in a program committed to intersectional teaching, scholarship, and community building.

Overview: Our MFA program combines studio and academic approaches in a substantial, residential, 54-unit degree program, providing students with critical workshop experience and a solid background in literature. We feel the best education for the artist includes learning the history as well as the contemporary work in the discipline, training in the theoretical and formal approaches to the profession, and practicing the craft of writing with extensive peer and faculty critique.

Faculty typically teach three 4-unit courses per semester and advise MFA theses. Faculty may apply for assigned time course reductions to support creative and scholarly work. Active service in the MFA program, department, college and university is expected.

Preferred Qualifications: Preference will be given to candidates who bring the potential to teach form and theory and special topics courses that include a diversity of cultural and ethnic perspectives. Preference will also be given to candidates who show experience working with students whose narratives are underrepresented in academia and the publishing world.

Application Procedures: Review of applications will begin November 1, 2017, and will continue until the position is filled. To apply, applicants must complete an on-line application at http://jobs.fresnostate.edu and attach the following: 1) a cover letter specifically addressing required experience and preferred qualifications; 2) a curriculum vitae; 3) a statement of teaching philosophy; 4) a 30-page sample of fiction; and 5) names and complete contact information for three professional references.

The gift — the largest single gift to the college and one of the largest to CSU — established the Donald L. Jordan Endowment for Traditional American Writing. The endowment will support a specialized writing program, a national writing competition, and an endowed professorship at the University.

The Donald L. Jordan Study Abroad Service Learning Program supports a group of up to 10 students and two faculty members to travel to a developing country for two weeks and engage in a humanitarian project.

A panel of selected judges, including at least one eminent American writer, will judge the contest.

The Donald L.

Jordan Endowment for Traditional American Writing.

Q & A Edit

Helen Zell CNF visiting positionEdit

Q: Is this a brand new position?  CNF doesn't seem to be on the U. Michigan curriculum.  Any insights appreciated!  Thank you.

  • A:  Yes, this is a brand new position -- a complement to the Fiction and Poetry visiting positions the program has carried for several years.  In the past, visiting Delbanco professors have taught both undergraduate and MFA courses.

Newer jobs first?Edit

Q: Is there any way, when viewing this list, of making the most recent job postings come to the top of the list? Or is it necessary to scroll through the entire thing each time you check in order to ferret out the new postings that are scattered up and down the list? Thanks.

  • A: This page has always been organized alphabetically (and divided according to genre / position type).  I can understand how that might seem a bit inconvenient at this stage of the summer, when people are looking for new postings; however, later on, when people are trying to track what they've already applied to, alphabetical organization seems easier to navigate. If you want to keep up with positions / updates as they are added, I would strongly recommend using an RSS feed to monitor the page. This will allow you to see easily what has been added on any given day. One useful RSS reader is https://feedly.com/ but there are many others out there. See other suggestions here: https://www.lifewire.com/top-free-online-rss-readers-3486649 . The link to subscribe to RSS updates for this page is: http://academicjobs.wikia.com/wiki/CreativeWriting_2018?feed=rss&action=history
  • Also, if you want to search for specific content on this page without scrolling through everything, you can always use Command + F and enter your search terms to go directly to the desired content. I hope these suggestions help! --Una74 (talk) 17:48, August 7, 2017 (UTC)
  • Would it be possible to add a "Date Posted" or "Date Added" line for each listing? Perhaps between the link to the posting itself and the "Deadline" line. This seems like it would be relatively easy to add at this stage in the history of the page, and it could be useful for someone who only wants to check the page on an infrequent basis for new listings (as they could search the page for the words "Date Posted"—not exactly the same as a reverse chronological sort, but something not unlike it).
  • Dates posted are already added when the deadline is open until filled, but I can try to remember to add them for other positions (i.e. "posted m/day/yr"). However, other people do add positions to this page at times, and therefore I can't guarantee that this will always happen. One thing to remember about this page is that it is managed on a strictly volunteer basis: there is no professional staff curating it (it's me when I've got time--and I have a full job and life elsewhere--and whoever else wants to pitch in). So I'm happy to entertain requests, but I'd urge people to bear in mind the limits of accommodating all requests. I'd still recommend using an RSS feed (as suggested above) as the best way to tracking updates and additions to this page, especially if you check infrequently. Thanks. --Una74 (talk) 15:55, August 11, 2017 (UTC)

Q: Expected Job OpeningsEdit

Q: Does anyone know of any expected job openings for this next cycle? (I ask because often people know of approved jobs before the ads are posted, or know of anticipated searches, or know of faculty who left/retired and will likely be replaced.)

A: Fresno State is gonna be doing 2 searches, for a fiction writer and a poet, TT, for MFA and undergrad teaching. Should be announced in the next few weeks.
A: Wesleyan University announces a search for TT position in Poetry for 2018 in the Chronicle, but full job details not yet posted (7/26).
