The Kenyon Review invites applications for a two-year residential post-graduate fellowship in creative writing beginning in August 2021. During these two years, fellows will undertake a significant writing project and teach one course per semester in the Kenyon College English Department, contingent upon departmental needs. Fellows will also assist with creative and editorial projects for the Kenyon Review and KROnline. Fellows are required to live in the local community and are expected to participate in the cultural life of Kenyon College by regularly attending readings, lectures, presentations, and other campus activities.

Qualifications include an MFA in creative writing, or a PhD in creative writing, English literature, or comparative literature. The degree must be completed between January 1, 2015 and December 1, 2020. Qualified candidates will also have teaching experience in creative writing and/or literature at the undergraduate level. A history of publication in literary journals is expected.

The Kenyon Review will provide an annual $36,572 stipend, plus health benefits. Completed applications must be received by the December 1, 2020 deadline to guarantee full consideration.
