TEACHING AT THE FWR
The FWR is always on the lookout for good faculty to lead workshops on all aspects of writing craft, as well as the business of writing.
If you are interested in teaching for us, please review our current and past workshop descriptions on this website to see if your proposed workshop would be a good fit. Then email us a workshop description and a statement that addresses the items below.
Your workshop title and description should make clear what the class is about, and not be overly academic.
Submit proposals by the following deadlines:
May 15, 2019, for fall 2019 classes
October 15 for early spring (January-March) 2020 classes
January 15 for late spring (April-May) classes.
We do not offer programs during the summer months.
We will contact you if we’re interested in your proposal.
In our faculty, we look for writers who have published, been produced, or performed, in the genre they wish to teach and who are good teachers. It helps if you have a local following (contacts and/or social media platform to help fill your class). It also helps if you have attended our events so that you know us and our space.
We do not require an MFA or PhD.
The FWR does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, gender, gender expression, age, national origin, disability, or sexual orientation and encourages faculty from underrepresented groups to submit proposals.
We are not offering poetry or spirituality workshops at this time.
We typically do not use outside faculty for workshops on the writing life, retreats, or book coaching.
We serve adult writers (from beginner to professional) who love to write, and share and get feedback on their work, and who want concrete information to help them get published.
Your proposal should include:
Workshop title and description that conforms with our past offerings;
Number of sessions and hours for the course;
Your credentials including publications and experience teaching adults;
A description of your local contacts and platform to attract students.
Send the above by the appropriate deadline to flatironwritersroom[at]gmail.com.
