Sarah Lawrence College invites applications for a full-time, tenure-track position in Nonfiction Writing expected to begin in Fall 2024.

Writing samples should ideally reveal the applicant's ability to work within more than one area of creative nonfiction. We encourage candidates to learn more about the philosophy of education and pedagogical approach that makes Sarah Lawrence distinctive and to indicate both in their letters and in their syllabi how they might envision working in this format.
Review of applications will begin on September 15, 2023, and will continue until a successful candidate is chosen. Should the review of your qualifications result in a decision to pursue your candidacy, you will be contacted by email.
