Become a Grub Instructor

At GrubStreet, we believe that inclusive teaching practices, global perspectives, and fresh approaches to the workshop are integral to achieving artistic growth. We seek instructors and publishing professionals from diverse cultural backgrounds across many genres—fiction, nonfiction, poetry, screenwriting, playwriting, and more—who are committed to these values.

Instructors should be passionate, inspiring, knowledgeable about the craft of writing, and willing to engage with their students’ lived experiences and literary traditions. We want instructors who are equipped and excited to moderate and facilitate discussions about identity and cultural differences alongside craft, and who prioritize creating a space that serves all students, particularly those from historically silenced communities.

MFAs, a long publishing record, or extensive teaching experience are not a requirement to apply, though feel free to tell us if you have any of these things.

To apply to become a Grub instructor, fill out this application form In the application, you can specify whether you would like to lead multi-week courses, one-day workshops, online classes, and/or teen programs. We interview potential new instructors based on fit, curriculum needs, and availability term to term. If you don't hear back from us immediately, it doesn't mean we're not interested.

Programs Assistant

GrubStreet is seeking a Programs Assistant to work with our Programs Coordinator on ensuring the smooth delivery of hundreds of creative writing classes per year. The Programs Assistant will help students navigate our offerings and register for classes and events, run the technical side of our Zoom classes, and welcome students into our space for in-person classes and events. This position will require a minimum of three days of in-office work per week. The ideal candidate will be a superb written and verbal communicator who is excited to help students from all backgrounds access creative writing classes. They should be comfortable working with numbers and spreadsheets, know their way around Zoom, and be invested in making the creative writing world more accessible and equitable to all who would like to be a part of it. This is a full-time permanent position which will begin in January 2022.

We encourage BIPOC (Black, Indigenous and people of color), LGBTQIA+, people with disabilities, and other communities historically underrepresented in arts administration spaces to apply. GrubStreet strives to dismantle every system, process, or structure that would discourage any person from working with us. We actively seek diversity, equity and inclusivity because the excellence of our work and the value of its impact depend on them. We strive to create an environment where the perspectives we bring to our work are valued as much as the work we produce.
