Job Placement Services

The Creative Writing Office receives the Associated Writing Programs (AWP) job list; the Graduate Studies Office (204 Lind Hall) receives the MLA job list. You can get help in preparing your vita and putting together your dossier from the English Department's Placement Officer, who also holds meetings during the academic year on job placement strategies. You may also wish to discuss career plans with the Director of Creative Writing or your Thesis Committee.

The Graduate Studies Office can assist you in creating a portfolio of Interfolio. Creative Writing students also have access to the AWP's dossier service.
