Penn State is Looking for a Writer in Residence

And now, another in our series of intellectual, um, stuff:

Penn-State-University-Writing-Residency

Specifically, Pennsylvania State University‘s Altoona Campus English Program is taking applications for a one-semester teaching residency in fiction and creative nonfiction.

The program is targeted at early career writers, preferably without a published book and is designed to offer an emerging writer substantial time to write and offers a salary of $10,000 in return for teaching one general education level introduction to creative writing workshop during the Fall 2015 semester (24 August to 18 December).

The resident writer will also give a public reading, visit other creative writing courses and work informally with English major students. The hiring committee is looking for a writer with publications of fiction and creative nonfiction in literary magazines. The successful candidate typically lives in the Altoona area during the residency; benefits and housing are not included.
