Writer/ Facilitator required for So: Write – Southampton based women’s writing group

They’re  looking to appoint an experienced, versatile Writer/Facilitator to lead a fortnightly Women’s Writing Group as part of the SO:Write project. Each session will be 2hrs long and will be open to women of mixed ability, aged 18 and over. One session a month will take place on a Saturday.

The Writer/Facilitator will be required to provide a safe and supportive environment that encourages, nurtures and develops participants and welcomes those who may lack self-confidence.

The Writer/Facilitator will be supported by a project manager, and there will also be admin, evaluation, and marketing support from an assistant volunteer.

Applicants are requested to outline a structured delivery proposal that takes into account accessibility for a mixed ability group and that works in connection with other cultural events in Southampton.  For example, the British Art Show is visiting the city between October 2016 and January 2017, and we would like to see events and opportunities like this and other local arts-based projects used as a focal point to engage and inspire the group. Applicants are also requested to provide two example workshop plans showing time and content management and an up-to-date CV detailing relevant experience.

This is an exciting opportunity for a writer to work with a group over an extended period of time and to deliver engaging projects that develop and broadcast women’s voices in the city to a wider audience. Remuneration is £90 per session, inclusive of planning time and any post-session support.

Please email applications to matt@artfulscribe.co.uk with a subject heading of ‘SO:Write Women’s Writing Group Facilitator’. Please send any queries to the same address.

Deadline for applications is 5pm, 14th October 2016
