“Like a child at play, the creative writer expends his emotion (libido energy) into a world of make-believe. In serious fantasy he fulfills his wishes without embarrassment, allowing his reader to do the same.” Sigmund Freud
The creative process involves the student in decision making about content, genre, form, structure, language, theme, craft, and imagery. The end result is the creation of something new that has its own meaning. The point at which various decisions are made will be different for each student and, possibly, for each project. The process, then, is an organic process, and one that is unique to individual artists and students. It describes the complex interaction between the student and the work-in-progress.
University of Michigan-Ann Arbor
Assistant Professor of Creative Writing (Nonfiction)
The English Department and the Residential College at the University of Michigan expect to make a tenure-track appointment in the field of Creative Nonfiction to begin in September 1, 2020. This is a university-year appointment. We seek applications from emerging writers who have achieved distinction in one or more genres of long-form, narrative nonfiction broadly understood, including literary journalism, travel writing, and digital storytelling, and who can demonstrate promise of excellence in teaching and of commitment to diversity in the academy. We are particularly interested in writers with a proven interest in bringing to their teaching, mentoring, and writing critical perspectives reflecting the experiences of groups who have been historically underrepresented or marginalized in higher education.
Applicants, who must have a terminal degree in hand by the time of appointment, should submit a cover letter, CV, writing sample (no more than 25 pages), statement of current and future research plans, statement of teaching philosophy and experience, evidence of teaching excellence, and three letters of recommendation by September 27th.
All applications must be submitted electronically to: https://apply.interfolio.com/65847
The English Department and Residential College are committed to the core values of diversity, equity, and inclusion, and we encourage all applicants to comment, either in the cover letter or in a separate statement, on how their research, teaching, and/or service experience will enhance our efforts to support these values and the needs of an increasingly diverse student population.
The University of Michigan is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer and is supportive of the needs of dual career couples. Women and minority candidates are encouraged to apply. All applications will be acknowledged.
