Lecturer in Creative Writing

Goldsmiths, University of London - English and Comparative Literature

Goldsmiths, University of London, is a world-leading centre of educational excellence where ground-breaking research meets innovative teaching and thinking. With over 800 students at all levels and nearly 50 established academic staff, the Department of English & Comparative Literature is one of the largest in Goldsmiths and hosts the Goldsmiths’ Writers’ Centre (home of the Goldsmiths Prize for innovative fiction) and the Centre for Caribbean and Diaspora Studies.

We are looking to appoint a dynamic Lecturer in Creative Writing (0.5FTE) to bolster our wide-ranging existing team, teach on our successful BA programme (the possibility of contributing to the prestigious MA in Creative and Life Writing may also arise), and supervise PhD students. We welcome applications from suitably qualified writers of novels, short fiction, and creative non-fiction; a specialism in or ability to teach poetry, genre fiction, cross-over fiction, writing across languages and/or cultures, or electronic literature may be an advantage.

You will have a PhD or equivalent professional experience, a proven track record as a published writer and experience in teaching creative writing. Experience in teaching both undergraduate and postgraduate courses at university and supervision of individual creative writing projects will also be desirable. You will have excellent organisational skills appropriate to the teaching context, the ability to work as part of a team to achieve departmental goals and a commitment to engaging the wider public in the creative writing process.
