Nonfiction Writing PhD Students Wanted
The University of Cincinnati is currently conducting a national search for a writer who will help establish their nonfiction program, and they hope to begin admitting PhD students immediately. The new faculty member will join a creative writing faculty that includes poets Don Bogen, Jim Cummins, Danielle Deulen, and John Drury, as well as fiction writers Chris Bachelder, Michael Griffith, and Leah Stewart.
The university hopes that any of promising students who might be interested in pursuing a PhD in creative nonfiction apply. Most of the school’s PhD students teach one course per semester, and others receive funding through editorial work on The Cincinnati Review. Stipends are competitive, and the cost of living is reasonable. The University of Cincinnati has a small and thriving program, with a strong visiting writers series, as well as an excellent publication record and job placement record among their graduates.
