An Adjunct Associate Professor in the MFA Program, Grinnell established and administers the annual Leslie Scalapino Lecture in Innovative Poetics and is the faculty adviser for Pratt MFA's The Felt, an annual print collection presenting work by MFA students and faculty, and an online journal: The Felt, presenting new writing from around the world.
