Literary Arts is currently accepting class proposals from teachers for the 2017-2018 year.
Literary Arts is happy to hear from experienced teachers interested in offering multi-week or one-day writing workshops for adults. Instructors should be knowledgeable about the craft of writing, have teaching experience, and some publishing credits. We are especially interested in receiving class proposals from writers of color, Oregon Book Awards authors and Oregon Literary Fellowships recipients who teach in the genres of fiction and nonfiction. Our teachers are contracted for individual classes.
Our classes are limited in size and focused on specific writing goals.
To apply to teach at Literary Arts, please familiarize yourself with our current class offerings. Then submit the following:
- 1-2 page CV, including publication history
- a 1 page statement of your teaching philosophy
- 2-3 sample course descriptions (no more than a page each)
Please send materials in a single Word or PDF document via email to Susan Moore. Proposals for Fall 2017 and Winter 2018 classes that are received by May 15, 2017, will receive the highest priority consideration.
