“Are you the next Fellow?” asks Saint George

The success­ful candidate will hold the position for two years, fall 2014 through summer 2016, teaching two courses each semester, one of which will be Hand Bookbinding I. The fellowship includes an apprenticeship at the Press and Letterfoundry of Michael and Winifred Bixler in nearby Skaneateles. All applicants must have extensive experience in binding and letterpress printing, experience teach­ing, and a MFA in Book Arts or a certificate in a related field. Applications should include a CV, 15 digital images of the candi­date’s own work, 7 digital images of the candidate’s students’ work, a statement of teaching philosophy, and three recommenda­tions. Since the Fellow will assist in the design and production of poetry broadsides for the Creative Writing Program, as well as announcement posters for book arts events, images of any such work would be helpful to the search committee. Applications are due by January 15, 2014, and are to be submitted electronically via an email to wellsjobs@wells.edu with Victor Hammer Fellow noted in the subject line. No phone calls please.
