London Playwrights Workshop is looking for an Intern!

Interested in learning about blogging and supporting playwrights? We want to hear from you!

London Playwrights Workshop is seeking an intern to support the work of London Playwrights Blog.

The post is ideally suited to an emerging writer interested in learning about blogging and getting involved with a non-profit company during its start-up stage.

About the job: The role will focus on supporting LPB in finding and posting opportunities and producing the weekly opportunities roundup.

For a person with the right interests and experience, there may also be opportunities to write additional content for the site and be involved in the production of the Dark Horse Festival taking place this July as part of London Writers Week.

Requirements: No previous experience of blogging or WordPress is required, as training will be provided in these areas. However, confident writing skills, reliable personality, and strong attention to detail are essential.

You must be 18 or older to apply for this role.

Because blogs are deadline-driven, producing polished and accurate work to schedule is the most essential component of this role. Should you be shortlisted, we’ll ask for a reference who can speak to your capabilities and strengths in these areas.

Hours/Duration:  5-7 hours per week (approx).  The hours are flexible and designed to work around other professional and personal commitments, as the majority of the work can be completed from home. As long as deadlines are met, you can work when you please!

The role requires a three month commitment to the blog, from June-August 2016.

Payment: This post is unpaid. London Playwrights Blog is run on a voluntary basis by its staff and writers, and this applies to the Intern role as well.

How to apply: Please send a CV and cover letter explaining why you’re interested in working with LPB and why you think you’re right for the role to:

Please also include an equal opportunities monitoring form if you are comfortable supplying this information. (Why do we ask for this information? Click if you’re curious!)
