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.

Director of Administration & Operations

GrubStreet is the leading literary arts center in the country. We are a hardworking and creative bunch and pride ourselves on a warm and supportive work environment. The Director of Administration and Operations position plays a vital role in helping GrubStreet to support our mission.

We are looking for a dynamic, solutions-oriented leader to join our diverse team as the Director of Administration and Operations. This role will be responsible for the overall administrative, HR, and operational functions in our growing organization: from the day-to-day work of ensuring smooth operations in our new facility to staff engagement and shared learning, implementation plans and reporting, and multi-year strategic planning. The Director of Administration and Operations will report to the Executive Director and work closely with the executive leadership team to ensure that our employees have what they need to thrive, that our processes and management tools are consistent and equitable, that we continue to strengthen our culture and practices with a DEIB lens, and that our teams are working effectively and collaboratively toward organizational goals.

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.
