University of Wyoming. Eminent

18 December 2006

University of Wyoming. Eminent Writer-in-Residence. The Creative Writing MFA at the University of Wyoming is proud to announce a new endowed professorship that each year will enable this already strong community of writers to invite an Eminent Writer-in-Residence to join its work, in this beautiful location, at this dynamic university. Wyoming’s MFA is a new program, but it already plays a role in campus dialogue befitting its interdisciplinary emphasis. For example, affiliation with the University’s Helga Otto Haub School of Environment & Natural Resources enable MFA students to double major, in creative writing & ENR. Teaching load for the rotating annual position is negotiable, but we will seek distinguished writers willing to participate actively in the program throughout the year of residence. The program encourages interdisciplinarity in its students & faculty, & will welcome holders of the position whose interest & expertise allow their teaching to extend beyond the MFA program & the English Department to include another department as well.

We expect to appoint for the first year an Eminent Writer-in-Residence those work emphasizes Nonfiction, but future holders of the position will include distinguished poets & fiction writers also. We actively seek to diversify the faculty of the program, & expect this position over time to enhance that diversity. The position comes with a competitive salary & full benefits. We will welcome nominations & expressions of interest on an ongoing basis. Please address all correspondence to:

H. L. Hix, Director, Creative Writing MFA
English Dept.
3353, Univ. of Wyoming
