Bronte Parsonage Museum Writer in Residence (paid commission)

The Brontë Parsonage Museum is excited to announce an open call for a Writer in Residence, working with them from April 2022-March 2023. For a commission of £4000, they are on the hunt for a writer who will create new work that defies expectations, whilst working with the community.

Their 2022 exhibition is ‘Defying Expectations: Inside Charlotte Brontë’s Wardrobe’, and focuses on some of the remarkable garments and accessories worn by Charlotte Brontë. The Parsonage want to commission a writer who is dedicated to ‘defying expectations’ through their creative practice, in both the way they produce work and what they create. During their residency, the Parsonage want the writer to use the Brontë story or the unique collection as a springboard for new creative practices and new work.

They also want to commission a writer who is passionate about developing work with and within their communities. This might include having conversations with visitors on a busy day, drop-in writing sessions or running workshops with particular groups in the community.

For this reason, the Brontë Parsonage Museum is going to an open call on the search to find a writer who will work with the community to create work that defies expectations.

No age criteria, no location criteria.
