Teach at Hugo House
Thanks for your interest in teaching at Hugo House! Our teachers are contracted for individual classes. We have a strong pool of teachers, and we are always interested in finding the best creative-writing instructors. To apply to teach at the House, please familiarize yourself with our class offerings then submit the following:
- 1-2 page CV
- a 1 page statement of your teaching philosophy and how you’ll apply it at Hugo House
- two sample course descriptions (no more than a page each) modeled after our online course catalog
Please send materials in a single Word or PDF document via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Our education team reviews applications quarterly.
When hiring teachers, we consider a combination of prior teaching experience, publication history, strength of teaching evaluations from either the House or other institutions, strength of the submitted teaching philosophy, and active engagement in the literary world. Once we hire a candidate to teach, we will discuss class booking. When selecting courses, we are looking for classes that fill a curricular gap. We consider a balance of genre, skill level required of the students, platform (such as workshop, generative, reading), and student feedback.
Hugo House especially encourages applications from writers and teachers of color, and teachers with diverse cultural backgrounds and experiences, such as religion, ancestry, language, national origin, culture, age, gender, and sexual orientation in order to best serve a diverse student body.
If you would like to get involved, please consider volunteering.
