LitReactor Is Looking For Some New Instructors

LitReactor Is Looking For Some New Instructors

I'd say that LitReactor has three arms which make up its core: the magazine; the writers workshop; and our monthly online classes. These classes are the most intensive feature we offer on the site. For 4-6 week stretches, students attend an online classroom environment and get detailed assignments, discussion and critique from critically acclaimed authors. To put this into perspective: right now, as I type this, Jack Ketchum, a man whom Stephen King called the scariest guy in America, is reading assignments from students and teaching them how to become better at crafting horror. Online workshops might exist elsewhere on the net, but no other site is offering the caliber of instruction you'll find here.

Going forward this summer, we want to begin offering shorter form classes that would focus on the business end of writing. This includes weekend webinars that would follow a different format than our weekly classes, and would cover topics such as Finding An Agent, Crafting a Cover Letter, Pitching Your Non-Fiction Book Proposal, etc. So for the first time, we are opening our doors and attempting to recruit new instructors to join our roster.

Here are some prerequisites we'd love you to fulfill:

  • Professional experience in the industry, whether as a published author, editor and/or agent
  • Some form of teaching experience, online and/or in person at a university or workshop level
  • Ample time to dedicate to teaching an online workshop
  • The experience and skills to build a class proposal and pitch it to us
  • Public speaking skills, for hosting a webinar lecture via a platform like GoToWebinar

If you think you have what it takes, please email us at and give us some background on yourself and what you'd like to teach.

We're ready to hear from you!
