The Department of English at Santa Clara University invites applications for a tenure-track position in Creative Writing, to begin fall 2021. Subspecialties can be in fiction, poetry, and/or new forms/genres. We are particularly interested in creative writing that emphasizes social justice, especially racial and environmental justice; and in candidates committed to undergraduate writing and publishing, including an emphasis on mixed media and/or mixed genre writing. Successful candidates must have a strong record of teaching undergraduates, robust publications in literary magazines (print or electronic), and interest in collaborating with other faculty and students (in the English Department and other departments such as Ethnic Studies and Women’s and Gender Studies) to enhance a vibrant campus creative writing presence with a commitment to justice. We especially seek candidates with publications related to environmental and/or racial justice in journals with diverse voices and readerships.
