The successful applicant would join a department with ten other Assistant Professors, all of whom are currently enjoying course release time each semester specifically dedicated to their writing and research. Although a highly productive, creative and research-rich environment, we take our commitment to teaching very seriously and teach both MA and MFA students as well as four concentrations in our BA program, including one in Creative Writing. Faculty and students also benefit from the presence of the Center for Literary Arts, bringing a diverse range of authors to our students, and Reed Magazine, the oldest student-run literary magazine west of the Mississippi. This position is an excellent opportunity for a teacher-artist interested in launching a career within an institution that is a national leader in graduating historically underserved students.

This course will suit the needs of beginning creative writers, but more experienced writers will find themselves engaged and challenged as well. Class time will be divided between lectures by the instructor, student-led discussion of assigned readings, in-class writing exercises, and readings and workshops of student writing. Readings will range from classic short stories to hip poetry and prose by just-emerging writers. Discussion will focus on the nuts and bolts of craft: on how good writers do what they do, and on what we can learn from them. Students will complete several assigned writing exercises. By the end of the semester, each student will produce a significant, polished, rigorously revised work of around twenty pages, for example: the first chapter of a novel, a short story, a personal essay, or several short shorts. Students must engage enthusiastically with the workshop process, and be supportive of their fellow writers.
Elayne Zapata, 28, Westport Island, Maine. This site is very useful for getting rid of old essays you have just lying around. Uploading is very simple and happens relatively fast, so long as you have a decent Internet connection. The process is tedious, as you upload, get your essays read and approved, and then essays are put into a queue and purchased in another process. The site claims it buys only a certain amount of essays a day and only during business hours. This is acceptable, but it would be helpful to know how many essays a day. I am currently 1600 and some change in line. It would be very helpful to know if they buy 10 essays a day, or 100 essays a day. It does give you ways to share (FB, Twitter, URL, and e-mail) and says if you share your link and others upload essays, you move up in the purchase queue and receive 10% for referring that customer. This is a cool feature but, again, it would be incredibly helpful to know an /approximate/ wait time, even as your rank increases or decreases. My essays have been in purchase queue for about 4 business days now. I have gone down about 100 essays in the queue, as other users made referrals. Again, I now do not know if this will take 5-7 business days or 10-14, or even 30-50. I am totally clueless. Overall, it is a good concept that is an easy way to make some spare change. Just dont depend on it for the money, as there is literally no indication of how long it will take for you to see a return. Theres a lot of waiting and guessing involved.
