Thursday, March 5, 2020

Do you teach at a two-year college? Interested in job opportunities at two-year colleges? Join us for our annual networking meeting. With almost half of all students beginning college careers at two-year colleges, and increasing numbers of MFAs landing two-year college teaching jobs, the future of creative writing courses and programs at our campuses looks bright. We'll discuss teaching at the two-year college, hold a short business meeting, and provide tangible resources for faculty.
