And now a word from our sponsor

It’s been a difficult summer and it looks to be a difficult fall at The Laurel Review and NWMSU, folks. We’ve lost a few important people (Rebecca Aronson and Bryn Gribben have left for the west). But with every door comes a window, as they say, so here is a job posting to distribute far and wee.

Northwest Missouri State University. Assistant Professor of English, beginning August 2009. Northwest Missouri State University seeks to hire a tenure-track assistant professor of English, specializing in creative writing: fiction, with a secondary interest in creative nonfiction, to teach at the beginning, intermediate, & advanced levels, as well as general education classes. Northwest faculty teach a 4/4 load. However, this position includes editorial responsibilities on The Laurel Review, which carries a one course per semester reduction in teaching load. Student support and committee work required. MFA or PhD & teaching experience required; substantial publications preferred. Salary commensurate with qualifications and experience. Send letter of application, vita, a writing sample between 20-30 pages, unofficial transcripts, three letters of reference, and contact information for three additional references to:

Dr. Michael Hobbs, Chair
Department of English, Colden Hall

Screening will begin November 1st and will continue until position is filled. Interviews at the 2008 MLA convention in San Francisco. Application will be acknowledged by letter.
