My colleague, Sam Boyce, is stepping aside from teaching on the Creative Writing MA at Napier with me and David Bishop to launch her own consultancy service. Sam is a genius (I’ve learned so much about writing from teaching alongside her for a year), so if any writers are wanting a rigorous helping hand, consider hiring her. If you’re based in Edinburgh, she’s doing two free taster sessions in Akva in November. More details here.
So, as Sam is leaving us (sob), we have a vacancy for a .5 of a full time post (direct link isn’t working for me for some reason–search for ‘lecturer’ and it’ll come up) at Napier at the Merchiston campus in Edinburgh. You’d be working with me and David in a genre-friendly, pretty darn excellent programme, if I do say so myself. More details on the role are here at the Napier website. This is our current MA Creative Writing blog (that will be transferred to the main Napier website soonish). The job advert closes on November 6th, 2017.
On the programme, we focus on theory, literary citizenship, SFF, crime, horror, YA, genre-blending, screenwriting, interactive fiction, graphic fiction, and more. Our new lecturer will help us deliver lectures and plan modules, provide one-to-one mentoring to students, participate in editorial masterclass feedback within class (instead of the traditional peer review method), and help with all that marking. So please, apply if this seems up your alley or share it with someone who would be perfect!
