Post-MFA Fiction Fellowship
Colorado College has just instituted a post-MFA fellowship: 2 years, $28,000/year and benefits, with duties including working with fiction students throughout the year, a block of teaching (3 1/2 weeks), and involvement with the Visiting Writers Series. It's designed to give the person time to write, plus help with the demands of reading student work in fiction, which tend to overwhelm the university's tenure-track fiction writer. We've had a great first appointment, and will start looking next year for someone to replace her. Contact Jane Hilberry (JHilberry@ColoradoCollege.edu) for more information.
