Jobs

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.

Program Coordinator for Youth and Community Programs 

GrubStreet is seeking a Program Coordinator to join our team and help us run our Youth and Community program in advance of our transition to our new space in Boston’s Seaport neighborhood. This position will begin March 1, 2021.

The Program Coordinator will work closely with the Youth & Community Programs Manager and the Director of Community and Youth Programs to ensure smooth communications with a diverse pool of students and instructors, seamless enrollment processes for our classes, and will help maintain the high quality of our programming by administering and monitoring our class evaluation systems.

The ideal Program Coordinator will not only be passionate about writing and reading, but wholeheartedly committed to advancing equity and building safe creative spaces. They will be amazingly organized and have superb written communication skills, sharp attention to detail, flexible solutions to clunky problems, and a commitment to learning and using applications and technologies like Airtable, Zoom, and our website database.

Finally, the Program Coordinator should feel comfortable bringing their distinct personality to work with them.  We work hard but we also encourage boldness, fun, and not taking ourselves too seriously. We hope the Program Coordinator is excited about joining the larger community of Grub writers in Boston.

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 we know that all people are vital and that their stories are our stories.
