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.
