Cow Tipping believes in the unique power of youth to bring about generational change. We seek out talented college-aged leaders both to leverage your vision and social commitment and to provide new experience and training that will inform a life’s work in any number of fields. We run three semesters of creative writing classes yearly (fall, spring, summer) in addition to a full-time Fellowship and, in general, hire on this timetable. Candidates from underrepresented backgrounds are expressly encouraged to apply.
Are you looking for “an incredible experience that has challenged my views of disability and allowed me to form meaningful connections with some amazing people?” We’re seeking industrious, adaptable, equity-driven recent college graduates for the third cohort of our year-long, mold-breaking Cow Tipping Fellowship. Selected Fellows will be matched with full-time, fully paid roles at disability service organizations in the Twin Cities, engaged in direct service to help adults with disabilities live, work, learn, and recreate in the most inclusive and enriching settings possible. Additionally, the cohort will meet for monthly professional development from our award-winning leadership that “pushes you to think about how to implement change in very concrete ways.” This role offers transferable professional skills, benefits and vacation, and opportunities for advancement both short and long-term.
Are you a literary, justice-oriented, adaptable and driven college student in the Twin Cities? Consider teaching with Cow Tipping Press! We provide structured yet flexible curriculum and support to lead your own writing class of trailblazing adults with developmental disabilities and help publish their work. 100% of teacher alums report they have fun on the job. Classes are held in a variety of Twin Cities locations (travel reimbursement available) and the average time commitment is six hours per week for six weeks. A stipend is offered for this position.

Volunteer or Intern
Cow Tipping Press also works with interns and volunteers. Usually, volunteer positions helping to facilitate our classes are for candidates who haven’t worked with Cow Tipping before, while interning is an extension of prior teaching experience. We’re open to proposals, however! Especially if you have specific vision or skills in visual arts, event planning, or communications.
