Become a Grub Instructor

At GrubStreet, we are always happy to meet instructors who believe in inclusive teaching practices and fresh approaches to the workshop as integral to achieving artistic excellence. We are looking for people from diverse cultural backgrounds across many genres—fiction, nonfiction, poetry, screenwriting, playwriting, and beyond—as well as publishing professionals to lead multi-week courses, one-day workshops, online classes, and teen programs. In the application, you can specify which types of classes you're hoping to teach.

Instructors should be high-energy, inspiring, and knowledgeable about the craft of writing. 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. We interview potential new instructors based on our curriculum needs and availability term to term. If you don't hear back from us immediately, it doesn't mean we're not interested.

We are moving!
